Author: James Moore

Node.js is great for many reasons:

  • It is fast¬†because of V8
  • It is efficient because of the libuv/event loop
  • Over 100,000 open source packages available
  • Great Package Manager - NPM
  • Huge vibrant community
  • ...

Callback functions makes simple things complicated.
