I came across this video about Node.js recently. Maybe it will help you to decide if you should use Node.js for your project.
I used Node.js for a project and I learned a lot, but in retrospect, I think it wasn’t the right language for the task.
I’ve chosen programming languages to learn in the past based on what seems cool or popular or what might get me a job. I then would use that language for whatever project was on my mind without thinking about whether the language was well suited for the task.
