This morning, on a conference mailing list, I made some disparaging remarks about Node.js (the title of this post, in fact). A couple people asked me why I felt that way. Rather than respond individually, I'll just list my reasons here:

this guy is right in so many ways. Why the hell would you use a primitive language such as JS on serverside coding _ON_PURPOSE_ is beyond me.

You know, Rasmus admited HIS language was a hack just for playing around with :http://www.sitepoint.com/rasmus-lerdorf-php-frameworks-think-again/

You should follow in his exampel Ryan.

For the record, I like Node.js. I also like Lego. With Lego I can building something simple quickly. With Node.js I can build something simple quickly. Both are clever ideas. Of course, I would use neither for something I have to depend on.

To be fair I mostly agree with your arguments! We all have been accustomed to managed environments and libraries that make our work easier and *safer*. We have become big fat lazy cats. Type safety, dependency injection, ORM, etc. it feels crazy to throw all that away for the latest shiny and unproven technology.

Brilliant article, so finally we can put this madness behind as a part of our history

actually all these node js fans should have been crazy about Jaxer years ago, may be they were toddlers back then , now they are kids i guess.

It makes so much sense that its guaranteed to be ignored. Around the DC area, you used to be able to make good money porting RoR to to Java. Same thing will happen again I'm sure, this time with the Node community.

Another provocative article that points in a similar direction is this one from Ted Dziuba called "Node.js is Cancer" http://teddziuba.com/2011/10/node-js-is-cancer.html
