JavaScript, not for everything

Ecstortive: “I find it pretty amusing when people are doing benchmarks of some solid technology stack to NodeJS, and declaring NodeJS to be the fastest thing on earth (just Google NodeJS vs *anything that comes to your mind* and you’ll find results like this, this, and what not). Beyond any doubt NodeJS model is worth attention, but will I use it in my production environment? I doubt that. I’ve worked on NodeJS on real serious basis; and experience was pretty bad.”

Your mileage my vary, and I’m not a fan of JavaScript, so take this sort of post with a grain of salt. Native, compiled code, tends to be faster.

Scripting languages have their place, and JavaScript is definitely baked into the fabric of the web, but maybe it’s best suited for the browser?
