Node plays a critical role in the technology stack of many high-profile companies who depend on its unique benefits. Here are what a few of them have to say:
Our entire software stack is built in Node. The key benefits for us are: great performance, fast development and a huge flexibility to do both high level and low level functionality.
Node puts the magic in the right places. We write our application,
and node delivers JSON over HTTP.
Coming from the PHP world we have begun switching to Node two years ago. Today we are building our whole application stack with it. We develop business analytics, realtime applications and content management solutions with Node.
The enthusiastic developer community and the ability to provide async events with simple horizontal scalability is the reason we chose Node to power our WhenToManage Peach PaaS offering.
Node has allowed us to build a global, real-time logistics
system without having to think twice about locking or concurrency issues.
Node.js enables zero-to-hero prototyping to quickly bring ideas to life, while still being robust enough for no-nonsense military installations. Node powers our internal and external APIs and manages our scalable real-time voice communication platforms.
Director of Product Development
We've used Node.js for client projects including building web services for
geo-location data and creating the back-end infrastructure for a large mobile
deployment. It worked so well we re-wrote our own website with it.
Node is clean and fast. Especially good for I/O, which was extremely powerful when building JLT's enterprise-scale
collaboration platform (with interfaces to everything) and a pilot for the new BBC Home Page.
We use Node.js to power the back-end of our real-time collaboration software. Between its superb scalability and performance, Node is the only logical choice for our current and future applications.
Node.js has revolutionized our backend APIs. We now can serve tens of
millions of global language learners every year with near real-time
Our backend API has been completely developed with Node.js providing us a great performance when our users access from their mobile devices.
It's fast, scalable and with an active community supporting it.
We can use Chrome Inspector to inspect both our frontend and backend code.
The simple truth is Node has reinvented the way we create websites. Developers build critical functionality in days, not weeks.
WSJD Product Operations
Node.js helps us to see web sites from different point of view. We wrote our own framework for Node.js and we use it in web design & development process to build web sites and online shops.
Senior Web Developer, WSD | Technology & Solutions
Node.js allows us to easily orchestrate thousands of servers in our cloud
and yours. The simple non-blocking network programming model allows us to
work with sockets and network traffic with a lower server footprint than
anything else available today.
Node lets us easily build efficient, high-throughput systems that scale. It's
a beautiful solution that renders a whole class of problems "formerly hard".
All our APIs on the server side are built in Node, looking for performance and scalability. It allows us to execute many independent requests from our mobile apps in cheap / low level servers.
Node’s evented I/O model freed us from worrying about locking
and concurrency issues that are common with multithreaded async
Principal Member, Technical Staff
Node has allowed us to build an HTML5 WebRTC-powered Skype alternative which includes the following realtime capabilities: presence, instant messaging, and high definition voice and video communications.
Founder & CEO
Node.js allows us to build our real-time cloud IDE with a
single language front to back. It makes life easier for both
us and our users to write, run, and debug code, anywhere, anytime.
Node.js is the execution core of Manhattan. Allowing
developers to build one code base using one language – that is
the nirvana for developers.
Sr. Product Manager, Cocktail
Node.js combines the strengths of other server-side languages into a
single compelling package. It's accessible like PHP, concise like Ruby,
Microsoft-friendly like .NET, and modular like Java.
Director of Technology
Node allows the use of coffeescript on both client and server- an added
benefit to the elegance and simplicity of the non-blocking programming model,
all while keeping our server costs low.
CTO of surespot
A news organization must be responsive, both to its readers and to a fast-paced flow of information.
Node provides a level of flexibility we haven't found anywhere else — and enables us to deliver
performant apps that can be easily adjusted.
Software Engineer, Mobile Web
We leverage Node.js for almost everything. From handling API requests, streaming files, parsing emails, sending push-notifications and last but not least: converting images, music-files, videos and office documents to provide our users with software-less file consumption.
Node allowed us to rapidly develop and deploy a low latency horizontally scalable solution in record time. We look forward to continuing to leverage node in key parts of our systems as we continue to re-invent the recruiting world.
We specialize in building custom service platforms and web applications that scale to tens of millions of users.
The ability to use a single language on both front-end and back-end, the great tooling support, the
thriving module ecosystem, and the evented programming model make Node our go-to tool for anything that requires massive scale. The best part? The community is wonderfully supportive and shares a common interest in moving the web forward.
Node.js is what our customers use to build enterprise-connected backends
orchestration makes mobile APIs simple and easy to create.
Node.js bridges the gap beween rock solid technologies (e.g. LaTex, R, ...) and state of the art web application development. All our software products are based on Node.
experience for the development of a whole new class of real-time
Principal Program Manager, Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.
Node.js allows us to execute our many independent
background processes in a non-blocking way. This is
essential to make file uploading and encoding the way
we do it a great user experience.
Node.js excels at providing a modern programming platform that's
low-level enough to be able to write the high performance and cost
effective systems our customers need and with a flexible, expressive,
and extensible API that developers love.
Node is a critical piece of our infrastructure. By handling millions of traces and thousands of connections with Node, we can focus on building a great service.
Co-founder and CTO
Node.js is not magic. It is better than magic: a useful
tool, making useful trade-offs. We've come to delight in and
depend on its laid-back enthusiastic style.
