1. Common Language usage along with better team efficiency and resources:
- This allows the developers to have a better understanding of the source code that happens within the team.
- Because of this, there is no such thing as a gap between front-end development engineers and back-end development engineers.
- All of the team members can function in conjunction and cooperation with one another. This reduces the team size as there is no need required to maintain and create two separate teams.
- One for the front end and the other for the back end. Due to this, the cost of hiring talent and employing them is reduced significantly within the organization or company. This becomes a great asset when it comes to managing the team using agile methodologies.
- When there is a common language that developers can use for all tasks such as backend and frontend, it becomes easy for them.
2. Extensive Code Reuse:
- The development technologies encourage and promote this between the developers of the application.
- You as a developer are able to reduce and reuse up to 40% of the code within the application thereby reducing the overall development cost by 50%.
- You can reuse the code for other projects up to 50%.
3. High Performance and Speed:
- When you use a combination of such front-end and back-end technologies, you promote high-speed development and build high-performance applications.
- Such applications scale fast and meet the demands of users and customers when it comes to the performance of such developed applications and websites.
- For example, Node JS promotes and provides high-speed development and scalable applications that are quite capable of meeting the demands of users and customers.
4. Huge Talent Pool:
- The number of developers and programmers who have the right skill sets and know-how in this particular technology is immense.
5. Widespread Support:
- This tool can be utilized to create interactive features that are accessible across various devices.
6. Remarkable Framework and Libraries:
- All of which are JS-based, all of which are used in different types of application development based on the requirements.
7. Simple Syntax:
- The syntax of this code is accessible to both beginners and experienced programmers.
8. Quick Execution:
No technology is going to be perfect. There are always some cons or disadvantages when it comes to using technology. Here are some of them.
1. Insufficiency along with computational heavy backend:
- When the question is about computationally heavy loads or thread-heavy loads, NodeJS provides a single-threaded operation that utilises a single core.
- So it is unable to do other processes or thread execution. This is the limitation of the NON-blocking I/O model that NodeJS uses and employs. This causes the application to be more CPU-intensive.
- This can have heavy backend computation that can be unnecessary and hog critical resources at times.
2. Relatively Young Technologies:
- It will take time for developers and programmers to fully utilise and employ these technologies and put them to good use for application development efforts.
3. More technology to master:
- The amount of emerging technologies is just absurd and humongous.
- In addition to creating animations, validating forms, and implementing complex functionality.
