I have a history in embedded software with C and C++, but now work on web services at Iron.io using Go on the server side and every language possible on the client side.

I love programming languages and can find something to like just about anywhere. I wish I had more time to spend learning about compilers.

It's hard to make a recommendation without knowing anything about the application in question, but PostgreSQL is often a good default choice.

Here's my advice: if you're developing a serious application that does lots of writes, don't use Mongo. You will regret it. (You might regret it for other reasons, too.)
