Node deftly incorporates these strengths in its fully asynchronous io libraries, making it ideal for a fast and simple web server. The community is robust and friendly, and has produced everything from rails-like frameworks to radically simple RPC. This makes it easy to write real-time web apps like twitter and foursquare (both of whom use node.js as a crucial part of their software stack).
Node is still in its infancy, but is already being used by many top tech companies like Google, Yahoo, Foursquare, and dozens of others.
