Node.js – Giddy to begin programming again

I have decided to begin programming again. I had been living in Ruby land for a long time and I felt like my technical chops were getting a bit stale. So, tonight I had about an hour of free time and decided to install Node.js and begin playing around with it.

So far, I haven’t done a whole lot besides browse some of the top packages on NPM. I did install Restler and so far I LOVE it. I was able to easily connect to the FamilySearch API, perform a Basic Auth, obtain a session, and begin hitting the API. It is so easy!

I’m actually feeling really excited to dabble in the Node stuff. Perhaps my first project will be to create a Node library for the new FamilySearch Platform API.
