Node.js is an open-source server environment compatible with many platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It is free to use and utilised by many companies, from small businesses to huge multi-national conglomerates such as PayPal, Netflix, and LinkedIn.
There are many uses for Node.js, including the generation of dynamic web content, collection of form data, and modifications to a database. It is mainly used to develop server-based applications that need an ongoing connection to a server. Examples of this include news feeds, chat boxes, and push notifications.
Of course, Node.js isn’t suitable for everything – like most other technologies, it has its limits. At Orthogonality, we’ll work with you to decide on the most appropriate way forward for your project, whether this is Node.js or another of the technologies we’re adept at using.

Node.js is a fantastic choice for many start-ups, as it is incredibly scalable and can grow as the start-up grows. Node.js is also often the most affordable option, thanks to the fact that applications can be built with fewer developers.
Yes, Node.js is fast. Compared to applications created using Ruby on Rails, PHP, Python and Java, applications built using Node.js exhibit faster performance. However, it is not as fast as languages like Erlang and GoLang. One of our experienced team members will be able to help you choose what to use to build your application.
As with all our software development services, the cost of Node.js development depends on the scope of the project and the amount of time it will take. However, you can rest assured that we will provide a competitive quote for your project.
This entirely depends on the size of the project. We usually offer a fast turnaround time if you need relatively simple customisation of an application component. However, if you require a complex application to be created from scratch, this will naturally take longer. We’ll do our best to give an accurate estimate on time when we provide a quote.
