Starting out with Node.js

We are having a little hackathon at work today and tomorrow. We have been split up into 5 teams and my group is going to make a app that will talk with Google Calendar and will be able to show statuses for all our meeting rooms as well as have a client on a tablet outside of the room where you can make a quick booking for the room if it is available.

We have decided to go with Node.js as technology. Great fun! I haven’t looked into it before but it looks really nice after the video-tutorial I looked at and the code I’ve seen :) We will also be using Backbone with it.

I’ll let you know how it goes and probably will put up some screenshots if we finish the product in time ;)
