Why NodeJS?

Node is a runtime environment that allows JavaScript applications to be run. A runtime environment is a combination of hardware and software that combine to allow code to execute. As an open-source cross-platform environment, Node is used on OSX, Linux and Microsoft Windows.

Node was released in 2009 and quickly established itself as a solid, fast-moving vehicle for app development. 

Node is a key part of a successful full-stack JavaScript project. Used for backend development, Node will facilitate a sharing, faster and more effective team dynamic. Also, frontend JavaScript developers can quite easily work on the server side and thus get the efficiency of both ends being as they share the same language. 

Benefits of Node

There are numerous features of Node that make it a highly sophisticated tool for app development. These features start with Node’s speed of operation which supports tens of thousands of concurrent connections in the event loop because Node uses non-blocking I/O threads.

Another benefit of using Node is the large range of developer tools that are available via the Node Package Manager (NPM). The NPM acts like a community market or forum that attracts thousands of packages (or modules) for download. These packages have been created by Node developers around the world to improve the development process.

This thriving worldwide community strengthens FusionHit’s ability to deliver creative, clever solutions for your applications. By picking and choosing the right combination of modules, our team members create their own custom environment for getting the most out of Node.

Node can handle a huge number of simultaneous connections with high throughput, and that equates to high scalability.

Node is perfect for data streaming apps as well as single page applications (SPAs) because Node is more than a match for these famously performance-draining applications.

This runtime environment also works well for AI-driven features such as chatbots because as mentioned earlier, of the use of the same language on both server and client side.
