New Blog: Node.js on Windows Azure

· Cloud Zone

Build fast, scale big with MongoDB Atlas, a hosted service for the leading NoSQL database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.

The title tells it all: right at the turn of 2012, Matias Woloski created a blog devoted to running Node.js on Windows Azure.

The goal: well, Matias puts it better than I could:

The intent of this website is to share anything related to node in the context of Windows and in the context of the Microsoft cloud platform, Windows Azure. Node in Windows is in its infancy so it's a good opportunity to share what we are learning throughout the process! This is by no means a Microsoft official blog, it's just a bunch of guys that happens to work together on this subject and decided to share their knowledge.

The reason: the Node.js community at large is quite strong; Matias and his friends know a lot about Azure.

In the past week or so, the blog already has six substantial posts:

But that's just the beginning. The blog will expand, and many of its posts will likely remain evergreen -- so take a look at what could be a great resource, bookmark it, and keep going back if you're interested in running server-side JavaScript on Azure.

Now it's easier than ever to get started with MongoDB, the database that allows startups and enterprises alike to rapidly build planet-scale apps. Introducing MongoDB Atlas, the official hosted service for the database on AWS. Try it now! Brought to you in partnership with MongoDB.
