Why choose Node.js for your next project? There are tons of reasons to use this server-side application framework, and two of the biggest are packages and modules, key parts of the Node.js foundation. The Node.js online repository, npm, contains just about any code your project might need, and it's easy to plug in that code and to keep it up-to-date. Plus, you can start giving back to the vibrant node ecosystem by sharing the clever things you have built.
(NOTE: If you'd like to review Node.js concepts, take a look at the Microsoft Virtual Academy MEAN Stack Jump Start and the popular course, Using Node.js with Visual Studio Code.)
