Node.js is one of the most recent technologies being adopted by top tech companies such as Uber, Twitter, eBay, and Yahoo. You may have heard of Node.js, but know only that it has something to do with “real-time” or “highly scalable” apps. Mobile development is exactly just that. Node.js is a perfect fit for creating mobile web and native app back-ends easier, faster, and scalable. We’ll explore why you should choose Node.js for your mobile development.
