What is Node.js and why do we use it?
If you’re wondering what is Node.js used for, we have a simple answer for you: scalable applications. It’s because Node.js is a very fast and lightweight framework, ideal for so-called asynchronous programming. In fact, using Node.js famously helped Netflix to reduce their app’s startup time by 70%. Quite a result, isn’t it?
Great technology for migrating your online business from monolithic architecture to microservices
Processes which aren’t dead-locked, making it easier than ever to build scalable systems
Ability to execute multiple actions concurrently, thanks to the magic of asynchronous programming
Seamless user experience
No buffering when the user launches the app, as Node immediately starts outputting chunks of data
WebSocket support, extremely useful when creating apps which require quick communication in real time
Open-source project, released under MIT license, with a huge community and hundreds of add-ons
The list of successful, tech-savvy companies using Node is even longer: Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Uber… It is also worth to mention that the Node.js framework, with its ability to execute multiple actions at the same time, is especially loved by the fintech sector – PayPal being probably the best (but not the only) example of such a financial company using Node.
The popularity of Node.js can be explained by the quality of technologies behind this framework. For example, Node is based on V8, high-performance engine created and supported by Google. On the other hand, you can also find many awesome open-source projects which, in turn, are based on Node: wiki app Wiki.js, shopping cart ExpressCart and cryptocurrency trading bot Zenbot.
Last but not least, let’s talk about Node.js & servers. In fact, with Node it’s easy to take advantage of the newest trend – serverless. You can choose from various cloud computing models and providers, e.g. Amazon Web Service and Google Cloud Platform. Thanks to Node’s high compatibility with those, you can stop caring about maintaining the servers and focus on your app’s business logic.
