Hey Node hackers!
Given last year’s tremendous turnout and success, MongoLab is very happy to sponsor Node Knockout (Nov 8-10) once again. If you’re wondering what the buzz is about, Node Knockout is a 48-hour hackathon featuring Node.js. It’s an online virtual competition with contestants worldwide. The competition kicks off at 12:00 AM / 00:00 UTC on November 9, 2013 and ends at 12:00 AM / 00:00 UTC on November 11, 2013. There are still a few spots open on some teams, so reach out to our friends organizing the event if you’re interested!
MongoLab will be offering both service and prize sponsorships for participating teams. This means that during the competition your team can sign up for a free 500MB Joyent-hosted MongoDB. We’ve partnered with Joyent and Nodejitsu to bring you the lowest latency possible between your knockout app and MongoDB.
