NodeJS is an event-driven development platform built ground-up to solve the needs of modern web:
massive and cheap scalability, reactivity, first class real-time support. Things like MMORPG or
a payment system (PayPal) can be build on top of it. Among other benefits, NodeJS allows to use
in IoT, desktop (Electron), Robotics, QA (task automation) and many other fields. NodeJS skills are
in high demand today and will grow even more tomorrow.
