Why Should I Learn Node.js?

On Thursday, October 9, 2014,
developers in the Boulder-area will spend a day
learning about Node.js in our Introduction to Node.js Workshop. We
want to make sure you are one of those developers.

Wondering why you should
learn Node.js? We have several good reasons in today’s blog post.

Your
Competitors are Already Using It

Your
competitors are using Node.js to move quickly while building quality into
highly interactive web applications. Node.js is the future and Silicon Valley
is well aware of it.  Companies such as
Yahoo, PayPal, Uber, and VMWare are not only using it, they are investing in
large changes to their infrastructure to support massive Node.js development.
To an engineer, this is your ticket to job security. To a company, this is a tool
that can help you remain competitive.

It Makes Event Development Easy

Excitement surrounds Node.js
because it implements a non-blocking, event-driven I/O model. This allows
developers to rapidly develop applications that share a single thread and
single global state. Node.js works off of an event loop and it handles events
in the order in which they are raised. In order for this to work, it requires
asynchronous architecture at which JavaScript excels. Think about how easy it
is to subscribe to jQuery events, now imagine if it were that easy to subscribe
to events raised by the server? This means if you presently understand the
basics of jQuery events, you are ready to put those same skills to use building
socket applications.

It Will Make You a Better Web Application
Developer

With a bit of training in
Node.js, a JavaScript developer has the skills to become a full stack Engineer.
Node.js can help you build interactive web applications that are easily
scalable, can handle high traffic loads, and are capable of being updated to
respond to user feedback every single day.

If you’re in the Boulder-Denver-Front
Range area on October 9, make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity to
get hands-on experience in one of today’s hottest programming platforms. Early
