Project Setup

In this first lesson we will install Node and MongoDB and prepare the package.json file for installing the required node-modules. We will also install Ruby and the related gems like SASS and Compass. Additionally, we will also prepare the grunt file for watching changes to the SASS file and auto-compiling to CSS. We will wrap it up by creating a simple ExpressJS server.
