Day 1 — Introduction - Learning Node JS In 30 Days [Mini series]

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser. (Wikipedia)

Hard to understand right?

If I just give a short intro about it then

  • It is platform which allows us to run JavaScript on a computer/server
  • CRUD options for files (Create, Read, Update, Delete)
  • Can use with any type of database

Why node is so popular

  • JavaScript everywhere
  • Super fast
  • Lightweight
  • Huge ecosystem
  • Great for real time application
  • High performance
  • Easy to learn
