We are about to start building a web based application to be used by employees within our facilities. The scope of the application is rather simple.
- accept user input
- pull data from DB based on user input
- pull data from Web Services
- display said data so user can review and/or modify it
- save changes to database
So then he said...
well then, how about I make it using Node.js?. So I started looking into Node.js to understand why I should accept, or why I should reject the idea. Quite frankly, I don't see why I would let him build this app using Node.JS over C#. He's not yet proficient in writing C# but, he's not proficient in writing Node.JS either. His learning curve will be similar either way...
My actual dilemma is this... Why bring in Node.JS if I know I can get this done without it?
