I use NodeJS at work and for personal projects and am interested in learning even more about it.

What do you love about Node.js?

I love that I can stay in JavaScript on the front end and back end - that really helps my brain! But also it's wonderful environment to write back end code in. I like the asynch capabilities and drop in web socket module (, and how simple and elegant the code is. And rather than an opaque servlet engine that is configured via XML, you get control over everything and configure it via script (and/or your own configuration files that you actually know what they do!)

What is your level of experience with Node.js?

Fairly low - can get around a bit, but not writing my own modules or anything yet
