In late 2011, OmniTI began working on a project to build a large scale, mobile driven service that would provide loyalty programs for TV viewing. Our primary role in that process was focusing on running the web API’s that would glue together all of the backend infrastructure. While it was still unproven (to us) at the time, we decided to pick Node.js for this project; we subsequently built—and now manage—that service. So, what do you learn when you throw a million users at a new technology just to see how it works?
