Constantly hear about that Node.js very popular: it most often start startups, it has become a popular freelancing (Upwork), constantly on different resources, such Habra, write articles that moved from the stack x on js-stack (on the backend, respectively, Noda), on foreign sites by search robots have very many vacancies in Node.js (for indeed they are already nearly 7000, compared to PHP 14000), well, huge commute, which also contributes to the promotion of technology. Although there are a lot of arguments against, of course. I'd love to hear your thoughts about this.

I think you do the same to your question in the question and answer))) Yes, node.js really "so popular"))
I think you are not interested in whether popular node.js (obviously because that is super popular) and whether he is finally right for you. You have to wonder what you want to achieve. If you want to be popular among startups as a programmer, then you must teach node.js . If you have a task to solve the technical problem, node.js not required. In addition node.js there is also PHP, Python and Java. These languages will continue to exist as major competitors node.js even if node.js will be on top of popularity. If you have a lot of time, learn more and node.js. Otherwise, focus on what you already know. At least I do. Wordpress for example is not considered by this serious "framework", not that it even as the framework is not considered. But I am still not bad earn. There are plenty of people who are willing to pay a thousand $ to professionals in the field of WordPress. And so I think with all languages.
