Node.js has become required knowledge for web developers. It's never been easier to go from front-end developer to full-stack engineer, since with Node you can stay with JavaScript all the way down. Node is great for backend APIs and it's also a solid choice for building microservices and server-side utilities. Node's rich ecosystem of pre-built packages and libraries provides the tools you need to be super-productive right out of the gate.
