We’re finally getting into node!
I’ve been using node off and on for a little over a year now and have found it works amazingly well in every situation I’ve put it in. It does present a whole load of questions that need new solutions and I’m pretty sure that’s where a lot of the conflict surrounding the platform comes from.
I remember the first time I started using node, trying to write code the way I did before in Java, perl, ruby, and thinking “Are you effing kidding me?” more than once.
One of the situations that stuck with me was looping over some asynchronous call, expecting to just push to some array that I could return. When that didn’t work I remember thinking “Oh god, what do I do?”
