Hey, thanks for all the responses, very interesting. I've been looking into Node.js for some time and found some interesting facts. Did you know that Node.js is being used by NetFlix, SAP, GoDaddy, IBM and more? I found it. Also, are those salary rates correct? If so, I'd totally start learning Node.
Please no links to promotional sites on first post, and definitely don't pretend that promotional sites are normal links to general references.
Yes, NodeJS pays well, it's a good field to be in.
You don't know JS free open source book series is probably one of the best resources too. It explains how JS works, other than explaining how to program it in a nice way.
I think that if someone understand well how a programming language works, then he should know how to program it in the proper way, no? :)
