Thank you for reading the article, Hammed.

Nowhere in this article did I suggest that Laravel was better than Node. I said that I prefer Laravel over Node.js because it lets me move fast.

On most of my projects, I'm a solo developer responsible for design, front-end & back-end development, deployment, and maintenance. I typically get about two weeks to build a functional MVP from scratch by myself. Laravel's features and familiarity lets me move fast which is why I prefer it. That doesn't mean that Laravel is better.

Other developers move faster in Node, or they just like Node more. I'd encourage those developers to continue using Node.
