Front-End developer needs to know node js?

Hello colleagues.
Learning technologies and frameworks javascriptа and then stumble on itself node.js usually I only use node modules, then the question arises: my main goal is to become a front-end developer, any backend(if not included in the front end). So the question arises, do I need to know node.js+if exress myself node.js this is the backend and not the front?

nodejs + express - it is far not the backend. when you have a bunch of internal services, all database difficult to walk on different servers, protocols, and even a little devops to be - that is a backend.

you nod useful for isomorphic js applications, server-side rendering for the deployment of test servers. in General, many tools uses the nod - webpack every, mocha, karma, Galp and a heap of others. and in General - need to know really everything, the more the better :3

Frontend programmer must be familiar with JS. Soobstvenno Node is JS, just the side view. Now, in the context webpages, frontend frameworks and the like, without the node will not get far.

If you know JS, then study the node at least superficially — not so difficult, so why not. Node — this is a common JS, which added an API for working with the file system, network and other chips that are not available in browser-based JS. Therefore, at least out of curiosity I'd see what it is.

However, it may be useful not only out of curiosity. The project is also necessary to collect. All sorts of utilities can also use node. And you may want to do some utility on JS, because it's convenient. The utility can be for a project for yourself or as stand-alone projects. You're not from the browser console code start))) at least there's no access to the file system :)
