JavaScript was first released in 1995. Since then it’s presence as a programming language has been noticed everywhere. It has the power to run all web browsers on any device and any operating system. Despite its popularity around the globe, it is favorably with client-side scripting. Many JavaScript developers feel that there is an insufficient vigorous implementation of server-side scripting. Things began to change when Node.js was released. As the server-side had been seriously improved, now the demand for Node JS developers is stronger than ever.

Why are their Salaries Changing?

JavaScript was a client-side language. Ryan Dahl used C, C++, and JavaScript to create Node.js, which is a server-side. Node.js is able to access the server’s components such as the processor and the memory, something JavaScript couldn’t do. Once Node.js had removed such restrictions, it allowed for full-stack development.

The appealed to developers and it eliminated the barrier between the front end and back end, with full-stack development much faster and more convenient. Node.js is frequently used with MEAN stack and other JS-based technologies.

  • Sails.js
  • KeystoneJS
  • Meteor
