What is Node.js and what are the advantages of it?
Node.js can be used to build different types of applications such as web application, command-line application, real-time chat application, and REST API server. Moreover, it is mainly used to build network programs similar to PHP, ASP.NET, or Java. Node.js was written and introduced in 2009 by Ryan Dahl.
Some of the advantages of Node.js
Let’s get down to the major advantages of using Node.js as server-side programming:
1. Node.js offers an Easy Scalability
One of the major advantages of Node.js is that developers find it easy to scale the applications in horizontal as well as vertical directions. The applications can be scaled in a horizontal manner by the addition of additional nodes to the existing system.
2. Easy to Learn
It becomes much easier for them to start using the Node.js at the backend. It is easier to learn Node.js and consumes less time to work with it.
3. Node.js is used as a Single Programming Language
4. The Benefit of Fullstack JS
Therefore, the advantage is that you don’t have to hire separate developers for backend as well as the front end development. It saves both your valuable time and money.
