Node.js is a high-performing server-side 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 a fast, lightweight and efficient model for development, Node.js provides an opportunity for code-reuse across the entire project. Furthermore, Node.js boasts 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.

Why Use Node.js?

Microservices and APIs

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.

Server-side Application Development

Because of its non-blocking, event-driven nature, Node.js is great for the development of real-time applications with push capacity. With Node.js, both the client and server can initiate communication, allowing for the free exchange of data. This makes Node ideal for web applications such as chats, data streaming, proxies, trading software and monitoring dashboards.

Easy Resourcing

Transitioning web developers to use Node.js is a much simpler process than with other languages. Because it is a JavaScript environment, its code is much closer to JavaScript Developers’ experience of front-end development. This makes resourcing for projects much easier, and the up-skilling process much shorter.
