Node notes

After a year of using Node (our team is ditching it) – by Gavin Vickery, April, 2016

…we spent more hours chasing docs, coming up with standards, arguing about libraries and debugging trivial code more than anything.

I would also recommend Node for simple back-end servers mainly used for websockets or API relay. This can be done easily with Express and we do exactly that for our Quoterobot PDF processing server.
