Fast, functional, and high-quality applications with Node.js
Why use Node.js to build your app?
Node.js works exceptionally well when developing real-time, data-intensive apps that handle things like messaging, eCommerce, progress tracking, gaming, live streaming, among other features. It has low development risk as it creates a more simplified workflow and allows for high productivity and scalability due to microservices. You basically get a faster app, better performance, and easier long-term maintainability when you use Node.js.
Node.js has no problem handling multiple client-side requests at the same time thanks to its non-blocking I/O model. It prepares your app to handle huge amounts of traffic with grace and no sweat off your brow in a predictable and reliable fashion.
Node.js has been around since 2009. As a mature and fully-tested technology, it fits many use cases and needs. It has been adopted by tech giants like Netflix, LinkedIn, Groupon, Uber, and Trello.
When not to use Node.js
Node.js is a pretty awesome tool that can be used for developing a wide variety of apps. That being said, it has its drawbacks. Apps that will carry out CPU-heavy tasks aren’t the best fit for Node.js as this blocks all requests, rendering its event-driven, non-blocking I/O model useless.
