Hire Node.js Developers with UpStack
It’s no secret that Node.js is one of the most essential technologies for digital transformation and growth in the software industry today. According to various surveys, Node.js will continue to play a key role in digital transformation in the upcoming years, especially as we transition into AI, hybrid cloud, and other next-gen technology. There are many reasons why developers love Node. If you’re thinking about hiring a Node developer or bringing this technology into your organization, here are some ways that it can help you get things done faster and more efficiently...
Build High-Performance Apps and Services With Node.js
When building software, performance is key. In fact, the performance of the software will probably determine the success or failure of the business. Node.js is one of the most high-performance programming languages. When you build with Node, you can deliver content quickly and efficiently. You can take advantage of full-stack web application development and push content to the end user with ease. If you’re looking to build high-performance apps, Node.js can definitely deliver.
Write Code More Quickly
Another trick that Node.js can help you with is to write code more quickly. Typically, software development is broken down into a few stages. You might begin with creating a design for the functionality that you want to build. After that, you’ll usually move onto creating a prototype. A prototype is essentially a mock-up of the full program. Finally, you will implement the program. While this process can work for some organizations and projects, it isn’t the most efficient way to build software. This is especially true when you’re building something that will take a long time to develop. With Node.js, you can write code quickly and move onto the next stage of the development process.
Handle Heavy Traffic with Ease
One of the biggest benefits of Node.js is that it helps you to easily handle heavy traffic. If you’re building an application or software that will be used by millions of people, you want to know that it can handle heavy traffic. If you want to be sure that your application can handle millions of users, you can use Node.js. This is because Node.js is built to handle a large number of concurrent connections. When you use this technology, you can be sure that your application can handle heavy traffic with ease. This can be extremely helpful for many organizations when they first launch their software. It can help to reduce stress and anxiety at a critical time.
Try Out New Technologies Easily
Another benefit of Node.js is that it helps you to try out new technologies easily. When you’re building applications, you may have certain functions where you want to use new or emerging technologies. You may want to use a certain machine learning algorithm or a new graph database. When you use Node.js, you can easily test out these new technologies. When you build your application with Node.js, you use a single codebase. This means that you can seamlessly swap out one technology for another. You can easily test out new technologies and bring them into your production application with ease.

What are the Basics of Node.js?
What is Node.js?
Features of Node.js
Asynchronous and event-oriented – APIs present in the Node.js library is asynchronous (i.e., Non-blocking). This basically means that a Node.js-based server will never be on a data recovery API. The server advances to the following API after the call, and the Node.js event notification mechanism helps the server to get a response from the former API call.
- High scalability: Node.js is highly scalable, as an event mechanism helps the server to react perfectly.
- Zero buffering: Node.js reduces the entire processing time when sending audio and video files. A node.js application never does data buffering.
- Open Source: Node.js has an open-source community that has created many great modules to add extra functionality to Node.js applications.
Local Environment Setup
If you want to set up your environment for Node.js, you will need two software programs on your computer: (a) a text editor and (b) Node.js binaries.
This will be used to write your codes. Examples of some editors include Windows Notepad, Edit Ed command, Letter, Epsilon, EMACS, and Vim. The name and version of the text editor can be different depending on the operating system. For example, you can use Notepad on Windows, and you can use vim or Vi on Windows and Linux or UNIX. The file created with the editor is known as a source file, which contains the source code of the program. The source files of Node.js programs are usually named with a ".js" extension. Prior to programming, ensure you have a text editor and you are experienced enough to write a computer program, save it, and run it when you are done.
Node.js Console - REPL
The module in the js node is a way of compiling the code in a distinct logical unit. There are a lot of readable modules on the market that can be used on js nodes.
- Express framework – This NodeJS web application framework is small and at the same time flexible, and it offers powerful functions for web and mobile apps.
- Socket.io – Socket.IO allows real-time communication based on events. This module is suitable for creating chat-based applications.
- MongoDB – MongoDB Node.js driver is the node.js driver with official support for MongoDB.
- Restify – Restify is a lightweight structure, same as the Express to create REST APIs.
- Bluebird - Bluebird is a full-fledged engagement library with attention on innovative functions and performance.
Streams allow you to easily read data from the source and write data. There are four types of streams in Node.js:
- Readable: This stream is used for reading.
- Writable: Unlike the readable, this is useful for write operations.
- Duplex: This is multifunctional as it is used for reading and writes operations.
- Transform: This is also a duplex stream where the output computation is based on the input.
Typically, there are four types of errors in the Node.js applications:
- System errors
- User-specified errors
- Assertion errors
Callback is an asynchronous equivalent for a function. A callback function is called at the completion of a given task. Node makes heavy use of callbacks. All the APIs of Node are written in such a way that they support callbacks.
Node.js will enable you to easily create and edit custom events with the event module. The EventEmitter class event module is one that you can use to create and handle custom events. Part of the Event module is the EventEmitter, and it’s usable for raising and handling a custom event.
General EventsEmitters patterns
There are two general patterns that can be used to motivate and connect an event using the EventEmitter class in Node.js.
- Return EventEmitter from a function
- Extend the EventEmitter class
NPM (Node Package Manager)
What Skills Does A Quality Node.js Programmer Have?
There are many skills to consider when hiring a senior node.js programmer, below is a partial list of things you should look for while considering our nodeJS developers.
Understanding databases. Understanding databases such as mysql, mongodb, oracle, and couchDB is key to moving forward with an experienced node.js developer. Node.js developers can use any database, but they should have extensive knowledge of at least one.
Great communication skills. The ideal node.js developer needs to work with multiple departments and be able to explain in simple terms what they are doing in regards to code building.
Understanding Docker. Docker is a containerization platform which packages an application and dependencies together. Docker greatly helps node.js developers create, execute, and deploy applications.
