Discussion on: Why Frontend Developers Should Learn Node.js and Express?

Why do you think for backend not only node and express?
I think it's about understanding the concepts and not about what language.

Actually, I am open-minded to different stacks and I would like to try PHP or Elixer later and I keep learning stuff like web sockets and web servers but the point of the article is its title!

I did not say NodeJs & Express is not a backend stack, I said it's the top of the iceberg. Yes you can understand some concepts with Node & Express, but most big projects do not use those tools, so if you want to learn about backend that is not enough to learn every concepts.

About the title of the article, you mentioned things you learned, but at the end you did not elaborate on why it is important for frontend developers to also learn those things.

Good luck on your journey and I hope you improve in writing your articles.
