General Development A detailed comparison of two novel approaches to developing web apps : Node.js and Opa. Both technologies are open source, allow writing "Hello world" web app in just a few lines and both focus on the Web rather than on generic programming. However, Opa seems to be much more concise, is strongly typed and by design makes most popular security threats void.

RE[2]: Author is clearly biased

Member since:

You might claim so, you might even be convinced in succeeding at it, genuinely believe you are impartial, and it might even appear so when glancing over the article ...but that's extremely hard to do, if not virtually impossible - just how our brains are wired, how we work (ho through a list of cognitive biases, this is our primary mode of operation; and the best & "crazy" part with, say, confirmation bias - research clearly shows that we are actually more susceptible to do it when we are aware of its possibility ...only careful methodology can eliminate such)

Most importantly, some side note in a bio doesn't change how, pushing such articles can filter down (or that's "up" in the ~management chains, I guess) / decisions are made.
