Node.js is one of the Javascript technologies that made Javascript so trendy. But why? This is because it builds high-performing, real-time web apps easily. It can be used for client side programming and server side programming. If you wonder what’s the superpower of this technology for server side programming, or maybe you don’t know what Node.js actually is, then this blog is for you. Here we’ll see the reasons of why you should choose Node.js for server side programming. But before digging to it, let us see the overview of Node.js.

What Is Node.js?

Node.js is an application runtime environment that allows you to write server-side apps built on Chrome’s V8 Javascript engine. It uses event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that make sit lightweight and efficient. And it’s ability to use Javascript on both frontend and backend adds one more benefit for development. Node.js package ecosystem, npm is the largest ecosystem of open-source libraries. Lots of big companies have adopted Node.js in the production environment.

Top 5 Reasons To Choose Node.js For Server-Side Programming–

1. Javascript-
Javascript is a programming language that web apps are using on the client side. Using same language on server-side meaning that developer can apply his Javascript knowledge both on client side and server side and use the same functions as needed.

2. Event Driven Architecture-
It includes a style that allows components to communicate through asynchronous messages. Systems based on event-based styles are generally organized as a loosely coupled federation of components that trigger behavior in other components through events. There are lots of event styles, for example- Point to point, Publish-Subscribe. addressed crosscutting concerns. is a module style, event-based style – runtime style, so it’s important not to mix them up.

3. Asynchronous Events-
Node.js uses an asynchronous architecture that javascript can handle properly. Meaning that the server reacts to event and sends events(messages) to the database. This programming style is different to synchronous style and might be difficult to use with other languages. Node.js uses asynchronous style with asynchronous IOS and can aslo scale.
