Since the moment Node.js was unveiled to the world, it has seen a fair share of both praise and criticism. The debate still continues, and may not end anytime soon. What we often overlook in these debates is that every programming language and platform is criticized based on certain issues, which are created by how we use the platform. Regardless of how difficult Node.js makes writing safe code, and how easy it makes writing highly concurrent code, the platform has been around for quite a while and has been used to build a huge number of robust and sophisticated web services. These web services scale well, and have proven their stability through their endurance of time on the Internet.
