Internet of Things has become one of the most popular technologies in the world. Various companies around the world have started utilizing the features of the Internet of Things to provide better services to their customers.
Moreover as per the latest research report of Microsoft, which is based on the IoT and made to offer the global overview regarding IoT, stated that over 85% of respondents will soon adopt IoT, and around three-fourths have also kept their projects under planning. Apart from this, 88% of respondents also consider IoT as the most essential factor behind the success of their business.
There are a wide number of programming languages available in the market which can be used for IoT development. The selection of a language will have a lot of impact on your IoT project as you have to deal with a lot of sensors and other hardware devices.
IoT lifecycle consists of a collection and management of data from a big network of sensors as well as devices. Also, this data is analyzed as well as processed in real-time. In short, to operate an IoT lifecycle with ease you have to look for a programming language that enables you to build communication between various devices and doesn’t break any connectivity in the entire structure.
The Server-side implementation is possible with Node.js. Also, its Event-Driven, Non-blocking I/O Model is best for building and handling web applications that communicate in real-time.
Node.js is capable of handling a bunch of requests that are generated from different devices such as sensors, beacons, transmitters, and lastly motors.
Node.js also consists of NPM (Node Package Manager) which holds the collection of biggest repositories in the world such as Arduino Controller, Raspberry Pi, and much more.
Various startups, as well as tech giants, are harnessing the power of Node.js to develop a network of different devices, sensors, and smartphones that can be handled as well as updated remotely.
The garbage collector feature enables developers to work undividedly on the development part instead of wasting their time in memory management. Somehow, automatic freeing of memory helps to develop a secure IoT application.
A node consists of an “event loop” which enables you to operate a wide number of tasks without looking to wait for every task to get over. You can receive and reply to events, then wait for a certain time to get a callback for a specific event that alerts you as soon as it gets completed. This makes it suitable for you to respond to events on-the-go, controlling a wide number of tasks parallelly and also enable different devices to respond as they happen.
