Node Js is available here.
Node.js is still at the early buzz stage. I think, and I’m willing to bet on it, that it has a long run left ahead of it. And considering the first two points above, I think it’s a great fit for me. Already, with frameworks like npm and Express, the barrier to adoption is shrinking.
To be clear, I still love Python. Its been good to me over the years and I’ve written several production apps (see Postach.io and QuoteRobot) in it and regularly use it for quick server scripts. Node.js wasn’t actually my first choice, but I wanted something modern and designed for the new web. PHP, Python and Ruby are definitely not it. My first choice was to learn Go (golang) but time restrictions and the team skill-set didn’t line up with that route. A startups gotta hustle you know! Node was a happy medium that we could get hacking on right away.
