In 2011, LinkedIn joined the movement when it opted to rebuild its core mobile services in Node. The professional networking site, which had been relying on Ruby on Rails, was looking for performance and scalability gains. With its pervasive use of non-blocking primitives and a single-threaded event loop, Node seemed promising.
I'm glad that there's an article about NodeJS and some more recent technology that's used in the industry the CACM.
It would be nice to see a follow-up article on the advantages and drawbacks of the different types of models; processes, evented, etc.
