Why We Chose Node Instead of Something Responsible like C++ or Python

Node Day

The backend of Voxer is built entirely out of node.js. This architecture evolved over time through a couple of different language choices, including very serious grown-up languages like C++ and Python. In this talk, we’ll find out how this somewhat reckless decision to use node has turned out to be a good one, and some important things we’ve discovered along the way. We’ll get philosophical, look at some code, and hopefully make some controversial claims that’ll be fun to talk about later. All of this will happen in only 15 minutes.
