What is Node.js ?

Cross-platform solution
It’s an open-source solution that works on the V8 engine, initially released in 2009.Since 2019 it’s been developed by OpenJS Foundation. It enables developers to create JavaScript applications with server-side scripting. The technology allows businesses to develop rich and unique web experiences that were close to impossible just a few years back.
JavaScript runtime environment
You’d be surprised how many platforms you use work thanks to Node.js. At this point, it’s widely established that there are no solutions that even come close for certain types of services. From streaming services and extensive social media websites to the biggest eCommerce platforms and browser games. If you’re interested in names, you might have heard about a few of those: Netflix, LinkedIn, Walmart, and AWS.
Necessary for many projects
Many Node.Js advantages and functionalities are unmatched by any other solution available, so it often becomes the only possible way to proceed. And it’s not like Node.Js is some sort of necessary evil. It’s actually super convenient to work with for developers.

Benefits of Node.Js

Let’s talk about specifics:

Server-side programming
The most crucial aspect and the main reason why Node.Js was created was its server-side orientation. It means that processes are handled by the server instead of the user’s browser. It allows companies to design exceptional web platforms with more dynamic content without worrying about performance. From the user’s standpoint, it means a much better experience, faster page speed.
The only way that makes sense for specific applications
Node.Js is not a swiss-army knife that can be used efficiently for every kind of project. Without a doubt, there are other, better ways to develop certain web apps. However, some types of applications simply cannot be done without Node.Js. Its server-side scripting makes it a perfect solution for data-heavy platforms like streaming services and browser games. For some of them, Node.Js is simply a no-brainer.
JavaScript everywhere
Node.Js follows the “JavaScript everywhere” rule that means developers can use JavaScript for both server-side and client-side code. Traditionally, it would require two languages, which would often mean that there’s a need for multiple developers. As a result, development with Node.Js and JavaScript only is much more manageable. On top of that, it’s easier to assemble (or extend) a team.
Many libraries to choose from
There’s a huge community behind Node.Js, which means thousands of libraries and ready-to-go solutions for developers. What’s important, a vast majority of them are available free of charge thanks to npm, a company that owns Node package manager. And, of course, thanks to the supportive and enthusiastic Node.JS developers.
Open-source and highly supported
Node.JS is entirely free, thanks to widely established MIT licensing with minimal restrictions. Of course, that means no cost both for our clients and for us. Additionally, as an open-source technology, it gets constant support, fixes, and improvements from the worldwide community.
Single-threaded processing model
Node.Js stands in opposition to many popular runtime environments that utilize multi-threaded processing models. Using a single-threaded model and non-blocking I/O calls, Node.Js websites can handle much more users more efficiently. The method is highly effective for many applications with heavy traffic and large amounts of data.
Perfect technology for IoT solutions
As a software house that excels in the Internet of Things and Industrial Internet of Things solutions, we simply have to know Node.Js. As a runtime environment that easily handles multiple connections, it’s perfectly suitable for massive IoT projects, such as Smart City or factory automation systems that communicate with thousands, and potentially millions of devices.
The solution that inspired Next.Js
Next.Js is a widely utilized full-stack development framework for server-side rendered (SSR) websites. It was built on top of Node.Js to allow React-based apps to work using SSR. Since its release, it has been used for many of the top streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, as well as other massive projects. We also used Next.Js for some of our projects, such as X.

Questions about Node.Js...

Node.Js has a particular set of functionalities and features, which means that it’s relatively easy to clarify if a specific project requires it or not. The most common web apps that use it are streaming services, browser games, massive eCommerce platforms, and social media websites. It’s mostly required for its event-driven architecture, scalability, and ability to efficiently deliver real-time web apps and other rich experiences to users.

We’ll do it for you after we get to know your project. It’s worth mentioning that Node.Js is widely utilized by many companies but usually only for particular tasks or products that require some sort of server-side scripting. In the case of your project, you can be sure that we’ll analyze all your requirements, and we’ll make sure to choose the right technological solution.

They surely are! Scalability in Node.Js platforms is heavily driven by server-side scripting and single-threaded processing. So there’s no surprise why many enterprises build their core products using Node.Js. Additionally, because the technology gets massive support from large corporations, it also means that we can expect continuous updates for years to come.

Projects that require Node.Js usually aren’t quick and easy. They need a lot of groundwork and an extensive phase of product workshops. So, before we start coding, we’ll spend a few weeks on research, analysis, and preparation. First, we’ll need to know your business, industry, and product idea inside out. After we have sufficient information, we can start the actual development process. You can read more about our product workshops here.

Of course. We offer full maintenance for all products we develop. We’ll take care of your Node.Js web app and keep it updated, bug-free, and perfectly scalable at all times. As your tech partner, we’ll make sure you don’t have to worry about that side of the business. And, if you plan to build your own team at some point, your newly hired devs will have an easy landing with our software because we take pride in writing secure and

In our case, the minimum budget for a project in Node.Js is 25 000 EUR. Of course, the exact cost depends on the size of your project and specific requirements. Please contact us if you want to know the estimation.
