Paywatch: Node JS Developer with 2 to 6 yrs. experience (June’16 Salary Report for Pune)

NodeJS_Paywatch_June2016

This month we are going to talk about an environment for developing server-side and networking applications – Node JS. Many people don’t know that Node JS is not a framework of Javascript. It is an extension that is built on Google Chrome’s JavaScript Engine (V8 Engine). 

5 reasons why Node JS is popular among JavaScript Developers

  1. Node.js is an open source, cross-platform runtime environment
  2. Node.js also provides a rich library of various JavaScript modules which simplifies the development of web applications using Node.js to a great extent
  3. Being built on Google Chrome’s V8 JavaScript Engine, Node.js library is very fast in code execution.
  4. Node.js uses a single threaded model with event looping that is hardly scrapable
  5. All APIs of Node.js library are asynchronous that is, non-blocking. It essentially means a Node.js based server never waits for an API to return data. The server moves to the next API after calling it and a notification mechanism of Events of Node.js helps the server to get a response from the previous API call.

You will find majority of Node JS developers in 2 to 4 years of experience. There are few in 4 to 8 year experience also, but it is hard to find such developers above 8 years of experience.
