Node.js has a special place in the programming world since it is not always the right fit for every project but does offer unique advantages when utilized. Connecting with businesses who fully make use of the advantages of Node.js has always been challenging. With Toptal, there are so many opportunities to find the perfect match of technical challenges on a project, as well as the ability to positively impact a client’s business and feel like I am making a difference.
