Building in ImpactJS multiplayer is like a jelly wrestling contest

If any of you have been following me on Twitter over the weekend you may have seen my epic battle with node.js, MongoDB, socket.IO, Expess, and ImpactJS. It was like one of those jelly wrestling matches you see in kiddie pools with hot girls wearing bikinis, except instead it was me wearing pajama pants and a hoodie against a gang of five web technologies/libraries opening a can of whoop-ass on me.

Here’s the blow-by-blow:

Tonight we will be facing round two: updating and deleting entries, followed by a rudimentary user login and snail assignment system.

And so continues the adventure of A Game of Snails: Shell of your former self.
