There are various other choices to choose as a backend framework for your application. The most popular one out there is Firebase. It is a platform provided by Google that can be used to build a small-to-intermediate level application. However, it starts to become problematic when you’re building a complex application as it becomes increasingly difficult to perform complex queries in the Firebase Realtime Database. Also, the price will soar high once you start getting some traction on your application.
Node.js on the other hand offers much more freedom and easy scalability. You can easily set up and get going with Node.js. Also, Node.js is a better choice while developing data-intensive applications because of its asynchronous feature.
In this Node.js Lesson, we are going to talk about the internals of Nodejs. This article will guide how node js works and how it can handle async tasks. What will happen if ten requests come at once? Will it handle one request and discard the other 9? or will it create a queue and serve each one by one. We will answer all these questions in this and coming lesson. Let's start.
