Hello everybody,
Just found this place in a Gitter thread and quickly enrolled.
As mentioned I am a dev with a LAMP background but since las autumn turned to Node for a big project and I love it.

Yep, after many (really many) on PHP based projects, being a Prestashop ambassador for my country, I turned to node and and enjoy it more. Now 50% of my work hours are for node based stuff and keep the remaining 50% for my regular clients on LAMP stack.
Saw your link on sails Gitter for the passport FB auth and got here.
Thank you for the article insight, as it happens I'll have to use a social login for my current node project (sails based)and your insight is very useful.

Worked with CakePHP for the last 10 years and initially planned to switch to Symfony, but got interested in node and now commited to SailsJS and Node (really loving it so far, even though the switch has been harder than initially thought).

I wrote the Facebook and Google Login (with Passport) tutorial as I struggled to understand how passport integrates with sailsjs and in general (the middleware part was new to me as well). I wrote the passportcontroller in action1 instead of action 2 as I like having it in one file instead spread out over more.

Well, I am not that lucky, will have to dig in deeper into Symfony as the main eCommerce platform my LAMP clients are using is Prestashop which current version is half (100% planned for the future) based on Symfony.
But I find the node environment more refreshing.
I also like sails though I see some shortcomings with the parasails wraapper when trying to integrate third-party Vue
multi components packages. This is why I did the current project's frontend with parasails but for the backend I switched to plain Vue as a separate application.
