Working as an architect for the last 20 years. Ph.D. in programming languages. Expertise in functional programming. Dabbling in Javascript for the last year.

Why does Node.js appeal to you?

Despite some monstrosities, Javascript still has several good parts to support higher order programming. Node.js lets me design API's, applications, and systems, without too much effort. It also helps me to unify the skills on the front end and the backend. The async model takes a bit to get used to, but I find it quite natural, coming from event driven programming of TCL and python (Twisted). Of course, node.js takes it to higher level.
