Learning Node.js and MongoDB

Writing a mobile app and need to write backend services to support your apps? With the arrays of server-side technologies, it is often mind-boggling to think about the various options available.

Introducing Node.js and MongoDB.

Using Node.js, you can use your favourite programming language - JavaScript, to create server apps rapidly and easily. Node.js is designed to be non-blocking, supports event-driven I/O, and is light weight and efficient. Using Node.js, you can create your own Web server in a matter of minutes. And using it to create RESTful services is both fast and efficient.
While most apps require traditional relational databases, with the advent of mobile apps and location-based services, spatial data is getting more and more common. This is where MongoDB shines. Using MongoDB, you can query spatial data from the database from a single statement. For example, your MongoDB contains a 100,000 places of interest and you need to find the nearest ATM from a current location. How do you do this in SQL? Well, MongoDB does that in a single statement and voila! You got the result in split-seconds.
