Node.js is server side JavaScript. It is also odd because in its most basic form it replaces the notion of a web server by a set of low level language facilities. You could describe Node.js as a do-it-yourself web page server, but this is just the start. It also takes an asynchronous approach to the problem; that is, Node.js is single-threaded on the server just as JavaScript is single-threaded on the client. Even if you have no plans to use Node.js is it well worth knowing about.
