Node.js is a high-performing system and microservice that is responsive and easy to use especially for highly scalable applications.

What is Node.js?

Node.js takes the fast and proven JavaScript programming engine from Chrome and moves it to the server, allowing millions of developers with JavaScript experience to build entire sites and applications in the language they know best. Along with blazing speed and a lightweight and efficient model for development, Node.js provides an opportunity for extensive code-reuse across the entire project, with the largest ecosystem of open source code in the world available via Node Package Manager.

Unlike some other languages on the server, Node.js is inherently non-blocking and event-driven, allowing for a much larger number of individual requests to run at a time. The core language has also been massively enhanced to provide access to the local filesystem, custom network protocols, and experimental threading models to fully utilise server resources.

Microservices and APIs driven by Node.js

Node.js is a popular choice for creating high performing APIs and services. Setting up a new microservice can be done in a short time with the ability to scale a section of your application independently. Node.js allows you share front-end JavaScript functionality without the need to duplicate front-end functionality such as validation.

As it’s built on JavaScript, transitioning web developers to use Node.js is a much simpler process than with other languages as the code is much closer to their previous experience of front-end development. This makes resourcing for projects much easier, and the up-skilling process much shorter.

Custom services and APIs built with Node.js

We can help you evaluate if Node.js is the most appropriate solution for your business needs. We’ll look into breaking your goals into well-defined, clean, re-useable components, how best to structure your services, and evaluate how to distribute the work load for busy periods. Our discovery process will provide a detailed roadmap for implementation and the times and costs required to achieve your goal.
