I've written a little article / rant about the MEAN stack. It's more flexible than people give it credit for. Don't pigeon-hole an eagle!

I applaud the initiative, but some of the messaging makes me shudder!

Exposing people to code and learning some basics is a good thing. Saying it's easy and anyone can do it somewhat undervalues the people who are really good at it. It's like football. Everybody can do the basics - kick a ball - but to earn a decent living out of it you need to be pretty damn good.

Well would you look at that... a book by me!

Mongoose for Application Development shows you how to use Mongoose with Node.js and MongoDB. Mongoose is great for dealing with structured data and also provides a whole load of helper methods for making it much easier to work with MongoDB.

Looks worth checking out for mobile development
Intel releases HTML5 Cross Platform Development Kit

This could be huge! Intel recently release Intel XDK (Cross Development Kit) with these claims:

With XDK, you can create, debug and build customized, robust HTML5 apps in hours, and the XDK runs on either Mac or PC Platforms. Intel's cloud-based build system turns your HTML5-based apps into 100% native API-compliant mobile apps for iOS or Android, or you can deploy them as webapps or Chrome apps. All from a single code base!
