ThoughtWorks’ Technology Advisory Board moved Node.js from ‘trial’ to ‘adopt’ on the radar. “I think part of Node.js' success has been that the number of people that I've worked with that traditionally saw themselves as client-side developers and found the world of server-side computing available to them,” Newman said.
“The other part of that is obviously that Node.js’ server technology has some interesting capabilities available to it; it can support large numbers of connections, it can spin up in a very, very short space of time unlike say Java.
“And it is now — but it’s the proliferation of open source tools and libraries that make it one of those languages, like Java might have been 10 years ago, that has the potential to really become a standard across a lot of industries.”
