What is Node JS?
What does it mean in practice? Above all, this feature brings benefits for the software providers as it keeps memory usage predictable. Also, it makes Node JS fast at processing web tasks. However, at the same time, the event loop makes Node JS not recommended for apps that rely on heavy computation tasks (CPU-intensive), as the mechanism may affect their performance.
At the same time, Node JS carries various benefits – from scalability (particularly for microservices architecture) to a rich ecosystem. No wonder you’re interested in implementing it in your software development process. Now, which criteria to use when picking a reliable partner?
#1 Back-End Extensive Experience
A software house that has a lot of experience with building front-end apps but little to no in working with their server-side might not handle that task. Thus, look through the portfolio of the partners that you take into account and check the ratio of their projects. We recommend making a room for those that have worked on the backend part or have delivered full web apps and exclude the potential candidates that focus on the front end in their daily work.
#3 Agile Approach
Scrum is a standard in the current IT industry, but there are still quite a lot of software houses and agencies that work with the waterfall approach or other methodologies that have entirely different specifics. The power of Agile manifests itself to a greater extent in complex projects that take a long time to deliver. Those that rely on Node JS development often qualify as such. Since the Agile teams deliver pieces of work in short, usually two-week sprints, it is much easier to control the whole process and introduce small changes gradually instead of all at once. Agile teams are more flexible and autonomous, which comes in handy, particularly when the backend work is involved.
If you take these criteria into account, choosing a reliable partner will surely turn out much easier!
