Simple Setup: DynamoDB with NodeJS

DynamoDB is a NoSQL Document Key-Value Database hosted by AWS. They offer to serve their database as a scalable cloud solution offloading the work of maintaining a database from developers. DynamoDB also features many integrations with other elements of the AWS stack like triggering Lambda functions and analyzing data in Elastic MapReduce. They support downloading and installing a local version of the database for development which allows developers to test without worrying about being charged.
