Picking up Node.js

Over the last 6 to 9 months I've started playing around with Node.js. Node.js has often been described as "server-side" but really it's about using a javascript engine in all the places you might want to use Javascript, but don't want the browser.

Node is CommonJS implementation. You can run code server-side, you can make command-line tools, I'm sure there is other stuff you can do with it too.

A good place to start learning Node is The Node Beginner Book at least for me it was a great starting point.
