What is Node.js?
Build fast and scalable apps
The majority of the websites use JS
Why you should consider Node.js
It’s open-source (under the MIT license) so there are no royalty fees for using it.
Fast and scalable
It’s fast and highly scalable due to its lightweight I/O model.
A variety of apps
It allows building any kind of apps: web-apps, APIs, desktop apps.
It’s cross-platform – you can deploy Node.js app on any operating system.
It offers thousands of free open source packages, tools, and frameworks.
A thriving community
The fastest growing and most active community of developers.
A smaller team
It allows using the same technology on the back end and front end, so your development team can be smaller and more agile.
A well-known technology
It grants access to a large pool of developers – in 2020, it was the most popular technology, used by 51,4% of developers (Stack Overflow).

All Node.js APIs are asynchronous, which means that any call made to the Node.js server doesn’t block it until the response for the call is ready. With Node.js the response is delivered with the use of events that are emitted when data is ready to get returned. This approach allows greater flexibility and better use of computing power and memory, both by the server application and client application.
With so many areas of operation of this runtime environment, everything related to it is gaining in popularity and developing rapidly. Node.js works very well on most operating systems.
Fast development with ready modules
Node.js comes with an NPM (Node Package Manager) – a big and constantly growing library of ready-made modules, libraries, and tools. They can be used to streamline and shorten the development process in a significant way.
Node.js allows a low footprint on the app server at hand so that it allocates resources when needed instead of allocating a large number of resources in advance. While a server waits for a response from a database, it continues to perform other operations, and only when the database responds, does the server allocate resources to process the response.
Node.js applications can be hosted on any operating system, so you can have the same code-base for your application, no matter what operating system it needs to run on.
Benefits of Node.js
With Node.js you can build cross-platform applications that are fast and efficient.
Node.js apps are typically characterized by higher scalability than other popular frameworks thanks to a non-blocking I/O and event-driven model. The technology is a perfect choice for data-intensive, networking, and real-time collaboration applications.
Where to use Node.js
Chats, communicators, WebSocket based apps
Data streaming applications
Video, audio, and data streaming
Based on different Node.js frameworks, e.g. Nest.js, Feathers.js, Express.js
Cross-platform desktop apps
A framework that can handle real-time applications and heavy data flow.
Microservices based apps
Convert a large structure into smaller, independent pieces, namely microservices.
With React.js, Angular.js, or Vue.js
They use Node.js
