One neat feature that comes with Node is npm, a package manager that allows for quick and easy installation, publishing and managing of node modules in general. For people that come from the .NET world, it is a equivalent to NuGet.
More info on NodeJS can be found at http://nodejs.org.
We at Vega are quite excited with Node and what it offers. It is a very good candidate for a couple of projects that are coming. More posts on Node will follow, stay tuned.
