Expert-led, hands-on Node.JS Training Courses for Developer Teams.

Node.JS Background

Node.JS (aka Node or NodeJS) is a back-end technology that allows a front-end focused programming language (JavaScript) to effectively and efficiently run on the back-end. Historically, in order to create a robust web application a programmer had to know HTML, CSS, JavaScript and a back-end technology (like Java or PHP). By enabling JavaScript to run on the back-end, it simplifies the number of tools a developer needs to know to be successful. In programming terms, it simplifies the development stack. This is a game changer for the web development world, and we predict Node will continue to outpace both Ruby and PHP in coming years.

More About NodeJS

Node.JS is an server-side JavaScript environment.  It’s generally understood as JavaScript on the Server.  That is the most important takeaway about Node.  Node changed web development and JavaScript forever when it came out in 2009.  It’s growth has been strong and steady since then.  It is now used in production by big-name companies like Netflix, Paypal, Medium, LinkedIn, Uber, Walmart, and Groupon.

The core advantages of Node are as follows:

  • Uses the dynamic language of JavaScript on a really fast VM.
  • Handles thousands of concurrent connections.
  • Uses the same language, JavaScript, and JSON for the client and server.
  • Node Package Manager (npm) has hundreds of thousands of modules and is well documented.
  • Event-based programming and the beauty of Ajax on the server.

People regularly think that Node.JS is a JavaScript server. This is a common source of confusion.  Node is actually just a runtime environment for JavaScript.  Think of Node as being more akin to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) than to an Apache server. Node.js training very commonly includes training on ExpressJS or similar middleware.  The comparison to the JVM is apt because the JVM and Java world in general where Node is taking over.  As this helpful article comparing the two points out, Node excels in the areas of Ubiquity, Build processes, Database queries, JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), Speed, and Momentum.  Node doesn’t have the 20 years of existence and ubiquity that Java has (especially in the Enterprise world) but it doesn’t seem like it will be a flash in the pan either.  Rather, the entire ecosystem around Node seems to only get stronger every year.
