Well in my journey i’ve added a new chapter, I started learning about the node.js hehe. Even if I am familiar with it for about 2 years ago, I never actually got to the point of paying attention I could say. Recently after watching a conference from linked in dev team I actually got to research of what node.js is capable of. Benchmarks comparing the node with php, it’s something else. Most of them aren’t actually in a real environment, but from how I see things I think node.js is way superior than the php. Mostly because of the non-blocking I/O that comes in hand when you are for example connecting to a database, or you want to process some data.
Even if there are ways to introduce parallel threads in php, it’s not capable to handle data as well as node.js when it comes to big things, and mostly due to the limitations of the I/O.
I’ll start learning how to use node.js and probably develop something nice for my fans
