However, Node really moves the game on. It has been around for a while now but everything interesting I see online these days is more than likely to be using Node in some capacity. So, after having recently finished a reasonably schedule-heavy job, I have time to work on my own projects and start tinkering again. I’m really enjoying it. I don’t want to be a programmer, but I find that gaining a working knowledge of interesting new technologies really helps me imagine what is possible and talk pseudo-intelligently with programmers about ideas.
Node looks to be one very interesting option for whatever I do next. I’m using Talentbuddy to get a start. They have some good free starter tutorials. I’ll try them out and see where I get. Having said that I have, just this minute, discovered learnjs , so it looks like there’s no shortage of learning opportunities. Awesome.
