We recently caught up with Joyent CTO and co-founder Jason Hoffman to learn more about Node.js. We asked why Joyent took the Node.js route. He said:
“It’s meant to be very easy. It’s meant to let someone write a server,” said Hoffman. “When we look at the general interest – most businesses are having to do API endpoints today. When you let more people connect via mobile devices, you have a lot more people connecting. Rather than having to have hundreds of servers, you can add two or three. Node.js is just a very easy way to write endpoints.”
