How Node.js Transformed the Landscape of Backend Engineering
B.N. (Before Node)
World, Meet Node.js
A.N. (After Node)
Node.js has paved the road for popular backend frameworks like Express.js, Next.js, and Meteor.js. Between Express.js and React.js, you can have a full-stack application running with only two lines in your terminal. That’s pretty amazing. And with popular NoSql database options like Mongo DB (MERN, MEAN), you can even just store data essentially in JSON format in the database. From database to user, you have consistency and know what to expect, and that is a powerful thing in software engineering.
