These are the nodes you know

There has been a pretty big push at work lately to start using node.js, so I haven’t been doing any of my usual .net or even (ugh) wix installer development as much lately. It has been a refreshing change of pace for me, especially being someone whose head is usually stuck in javascript for days at a time anyway.

Even more interesting than getting into some node tomfoolery (which has been accompanied by being thrown headfirst into Angular development), is that it has finally given me the lens that allows me to understand the concept of OWIN in Microsoft land. After reading some of the ideas behind its conception and implementation, I desperately want a project that would let me play around with it. Sadly, I think it might be a while before that happens.
