A very interesting post “trashing” node.js, titled “The emperor’s new clothes were built with Node.js” at notes.ericjiang.com/posts/751. Not having used node.js personally, I was under the impression the scenario was much better (yes, there is a lot of hype around the technology), but again not having used it I’m not sure if this article really has a point.
That’s all for these few weeks. Trying to get more regular, but no promise.
