Discussion on: Is django underrated and node.js(express.js) overrated ?

I have worked in both technologies and I do find Django as a robust full-stack solution. Express is more like bring your legos and build it but you do get a feeling of superior control.

In my opinion, it's more related to hiring practices rather than technical superiority.

A Django developer would need a dedicated Frontend guy.
A JS developer can work on frontend and backend both.
So effectively a full-stack JS is just more lucrative to hire than a dedicated set of developers.

Ohhh I see. That means it's the industry who did this trend not the developers.
Thanks for the insight.
