This summer I started working in a big company, a really big company! I don’t want to say any names, but I’ll disclose the initials: I B M.
As part of my first project, I needed to understand how an existing tool worked, and then add features to it. I quickly discovered that this was a more significant task than it seemed; unfortunately, it was down to my ineptitude at Java rather than the complexity of the problem at hand.

The benefit of node-first development is that you can solve the problem coherently in practically no time and no code. For me, writing in JS is akin to writing Pseudo-code, but it actually works, and isn’t this nebulous nonsense. Node.js let’s you write pseudo-code-style by abstracting everything away into modules. re-usable modules!
At least, that’s my excuse!
