This talk will provide an introduction to Node.js and demonstrate how to quickly build a database driven web application using MongoDB.

Node.js is an open source, cross-platform JavaScript runtime environment for server-side and networking applications. First released in 2009, Node.js has seen rapid adoption due its event-driven architecture, non-blocking I/O API, and use of the familiar JavaScript programming language.

MongoDB is an open-source, cross platform document-oriented database used for a wide variety of modern applications. MongoDB's JSON-like document structure and JavaScript powered administrative shell are a natural fit for Node.js developers. MongoDB is designed for scalability, performance, and high availability. Database deployments can scale from single servers to multiple servers and complex multi-site clusters.

The combination of Node.js & MongoDB allows developers to effectively work with a single language across their full stack: JavaScript in the web browser, JavaScript in application code, and JavaScript for database administration. MongoDB is an agile database that allows schemas to change quickly as applications evolve, while still providing the functionality developers expect from traditional databases such as secondary indexes, an expressive query language,
