What our customers are saying

At a Glance: Node.js

Introduced in 2009, Node.js is an open-source, JavaScript-based, server-side development platform and runtime environment. If you’re looking to build a MEAN stack—MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and Node.js—you’ll need the help of Node.js developer to build, run, and test the back end of your new web project.
Node.js developers can help you build the back end for fast, asynchronous dynamic websites and applications. They can construct real-time web APIs, web servers, networking tools, and modules that make up the behind-the-scenes elements of a dynamic webpage. A Node.js programmer can also use the runtime environment to run live unit tests of your website, incorporating Agile development practices like test-driven development (TDD). Because Node.js is written in JavaScript, it brings event-driven programming server side, allowing the server to handle process loops from multiple APIs without the slowdown caused by threading. Combining it with frameworks like Socket.IO, Connect, and Express.js can greatly accelerate the development process. The talented Node.js developers on Upwork can bring the speed and efficiency of JavaScript to the back-end logic on your web servers.

Built to run on the Node.js back-end platform, it’s a new way to write asynchronous JavaScript code without the complexities of callbacks.

Express.js: A Server-Side JavaScript Framework

The Express framework is able to layer in built-in structure and functions needed to build a site. It’s a pretty lightweight framework that’s great for giving developers extra, built-in web application features and the Express API without overriding the already robust, feature-packed Node.js platform.
