Find out how to use Node.js to ship better enterprise products faster.
Advantages of Node.js
The Node Package manager has an incredible amount (over 150.000) of modules that can be used instantly. This saves a lot of development effort.
With a microservice-based architecture, the parts of your service can be scaled separately. There are no wasted resources from now on.
Smaller teams and codebases are much easier to handle. Working with microservices allows splitting the team into smaller groups and assigning them specific services that they are responsible for.
Your team will use the same language on the entire stack. All developers can easily understand what is going on, and make changes if necessary.
By allowing the less often used parts to run on less powerful machines, you will spend less money on the infrastructure.
Node.js has a well-established Long Term Support plan, which means that each release is going to be maintained for a period of 30 months.
