I have to admit…. since not a too long time i though that node is mainly great at asynchronous IO. But for async IO i can do a great work in ruby with event-machine or the same on another language.
But i decided to get more involved and began to code small client project backend and my latest hackathon participation in node.js
And yes i’m impressed bu the community:
- huge package repository
- contribs for amqp, queue workers or other hipsters hackers technos
- great tests frameworks
- package manager on the top
