What is Node.js
There's an enormous energy of ideas flowing into Node.js right now
Advantages of Node.js
Here are some advantages about Node.js:
- Ability to handle thousands of concurrent connections with minimal overhead on a single process.
Disadvantages of Node.js
Here are some disadvantages about Node.js:
- Single-threaded: Node.js is single-threaded. You can take advantage of multiple CPUs, but in general everything is designed to use the Event-Loop in order to achieve extraordinary performance. This can also be an advantage, since e.g write conflicts on files aren’t that relevant.
- Event Loop: The Event Loop is the core of Node.js and it’s a genius idea. But, Don’t use Node.js for blocking, CPU-intensive tasks. Node.js is not suited for stuff like that. Node.js is suited for I/O stuff (like web servers).
- Don’t use Node.js for CPU-intensive tasks.
- Node.js rocks for servers.
