Node.js is coming up on its fifth year of existence and is clearly showing signs of maturity, from the core APIs becoming more stable, to the exponential growth of modules in npm to even a number of books being published to support the education needs of developers who want to learn Node. Node.js is officially past the infancy it was once in and is developing into a proper first class technology solution.
With this growth, there are growing pains. We have an exceptionally large and growing community of developers and now, enterprise companies who are adopting and actively supporting and contributing to Node. With this growth comes new challenges and new opportunities to strengthen the value propositions behind using and adopting Node.
