It doesn't exist and I know of no one actively working on it.  The
biggest requirement to successfully do a backend is having reasonable
speed hardware (of that architecture) to work on.  Not strictly
necessary, but it really helps.

That and the realization that hello world is a big step for a backend :)

Good luck!
