Is Python really better than Node.js for backend, unless you want to use some specific library?

I like Python a lot, but Node.js is a good ecosystem too! I wasn't trying to make a value judgement about Node.js or its community. This stream was all about me removing Node.js from my production deployment process.

I needed npm packages to build my JavaScript for my project. Previous streams showed how I moved that JavaScript building into my CI system. This stream removed JavaScript building from the deployment to production to make deployment shorter, do less work, and safer.

So, both are great. :)
