Empower your projects with Node.js development

Empower your projects with Node.js development

“I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” – Bill Gates

It’s safe to say we all want easier solutions to our problems, especially when a lot of time and money are involved. This principle is one of the main reasons Node.js exists.

Node.js makes remote collaboration as easy as if developers were in the same room and makes on-site projects more productive. How? It all comes from the concept itself.

When we mention Node.js, we’re talking about a run-time environment built on Google Chrome’s JavaScript Engine (V8), which works on the side of the server. So, programmers can use JavaScript for backend development. 

How does this fact make the development team more productive? By using the same language on the backend and the frontend, JavaScript programmers take care of both sides, unifying the project and enabling developers to be on the same page.

But there is more to it than that. Its adaptability, scalability, high-performance, and speed offer the freedom to create almost any kind of project— and here you will see why, how, and where to start.

Node.js: Why and How We Use It

Why

Node.js has 70,000+ stars on GitHub, 2450 contributors, and more than one billion downloads. Those facts alone should be more than enough to show you it deserves your attention. Now, let’s see if what features justify its popularity.

  • High-performance – All Node.js library APIs are asynchronous, meaning they can execute multiple actions simultaneously without blocking or waiting for each other, making them incredibly productive. Adding to its high performance, Node.js is built on Google Chrome’s V8 JavaScript Engine, which is very efficient and fast in code execution.As a real-life example, we have LinkedIn, a worldwide platform for professionals to connect with great businesses and vice-versa. Its mobile app backend was built on Node.js. Today LinkedIn has over 450 million members, yet the app’s speed and adaptability are better than ever. That’s the level of performance you can achieve with this technology.
  • Instant responses – WebSocket provides a persistent connection between a client and a server that both parties can use to send data at any time. Node.js has WebSocket support, which provides full-duplex communication channels over a single TCP connection. These features are very useful when creating apps that need quick, multi-skilled development.
  • Latest trends – Node.js has adapted and even contributed to some of the latest tech trends,  from crypto and streaming to serverless. This goes along with a large list of influential and acclaimed businesses use Node.js because its unique features make it the leading technology for full-stack development.
  • Scalability – It uses a single-threaded program that can provide service to a large number of requests, even more than an HTTP server. Node.js responds in a non-blocking way, instead of creating traditional, limited threads to handle requests.Uber is another real-life example that illustrates this. As the company’s users and demand grew every month, its developers used Node.js as a solution. The result? Uber is now able to process over two million remote procedure calls (RPC) per second — even at peak times!

How

With Node.js, you can either develop efficient software or create outstanding apps that will remain on people’s devices for years. It all depends on how you use it. So, how do we make the best out of this framework?

  • Skilled programmers – Node.js is a brilliant product. However, it would be worthless without the expertise and responsiveness of a skilled developer who is truly interested in your project’s success. That’s why our programmers have gone the extra mile to achieve expertise in this technology and use it to improve performance according to our clients’ needs, saving you valuable time and money.
  • Customized projects – Paypal, Netflix, Uber, and LinkedIn. So different, and yet they all have something in common: Node.js. These products represent only a small sample of the great variety of apps and interfaces you can create with it. That’s because Node.js gives you the freedom to begin everything from scratch. That is, to develop not only interfaces but also apps and software, something that Ruby on Rails can’t do because of certain guidelines. What this freedom means for you is that our skilled programmers can make what you want how you want it, especially because we focus on listening and your ideas onto the screen.
