Also fun fact* NestJS with the fastify adapter is extremely fast! In my testing it was faster than express, koa, sails, and adonis.

We use NestJS at my work for a specific project and we have been quite satisfied. We made our decision based on it's flexibility combined with out of the box functionality which was perfect to get more junior developers building something fairly well structured without much oversight.

That's great to hear! Do you have any applications in production from your organization? I'd love to take a look and share it with the Nest team! 🐈

Unfortunately we are still in stealth mode, but perhaps soon! We are using NestJS in production to good effect under relatively low load with closed beta users. Obviously a lot goes into response time, not just the framework, but we are routinely able to achieve sub 100ms API requests after the JIT has optimized the calls. Our frontend devs thought they were still using inline JS mock data because the response time was so low :3
