Is Node Better Than Your Legacy Tech Stack?
Node.js is our backend of choice here at Differential. Most of the time we use Meteor because of its sane defaults, easy setup, and real-time first design. Even when we use Meteor, we write a lot of code that would run identically in Node without Meteor.
Is Node.js fast, stable, and scalable enough to build a reliable production server?
Not only is Node.js incredibly convenient, the test of time has proven its stability and scalability in many different roles in a backend tech stack. In addition, its adoption by larger, fast-moving tech companies has done a lot to dissipate the stigma around the tool. But don’t just take my word for it.
Not only does Node.js provide a comfortable environment for developers with an experience primarily on front-end work, most organizations have found that it performs just as well, if not better than their legacy tech stacks.
