How I Got Into Node: Matteo Collina by Node.js Foundation

A talented developer based in Italy, Matteo has been a staple in the Node community since 2011 and is a strong contributor to the community through the Node.js Foundation. Here are some highlights of the interview with him:

"Node.js is the first platform where we can have immense productivity and very interesting performance. Java can be as fast as Node, or even faster, but it requires way more effort to do so."

"I believe in Node.js because it empowers developers to build new products at an accelerated pace. The amount of code that can be reused through npm is staggering. From tiny dev shops in Italy to multi-billion companies, Node.js improves the life of fellow developers."
