Mine isn't as exciting, but I wrote an NGINX + Node.js webscraper server for our church. Because of difference in Facebook and YouTube streaming requirements, there had to be different streams with different resolutions and such, and for free, because our Wirecast license has ended. Nobody, but me knows how to run nginx, so I wrote a custom little node.js controller + webscraper to turn on the stream on Facebook and stream to YouTube in 1080p. Later on they approved this solution and we bought a little SBC and are running it as an actual server, not localhost program :)
