LookupLink provides a platform for individuals to easily access digital content through short tags and QR codes. We hope that one day people won't have to pass up on a car they're interested in buying, an event they'd like to attend, or a person they'd like to contact, because they didn't have a convenient way to reference that information.

Our stack runs NodeJS and MongoDB and lives on Dotcloud (our awesome PaaS). We are very enthusiastic about the technologies that we use! MongoDB helps us stay agile, by not locking us into a schema, which helps us stay highly available while we continue to develop our product. We are a small team, so remaining flexible is essential to staying afloat. One of our challenges was finding a compromise between being completely schema less, and incorporating some structure. We managed to do so using some NodeJS frameworks and our stack has never been happier, speaking only Javascript. Not to mention our developers too.
