Few years ago if someone would mention "Javascript" and "Backend" in one sentence, I would burst in laugh. With quick internet scraping I see it's becoming a reality. Quo vadis, orbis?

    Do laugh. I mean, what are the odds of some critical piece of infrastructure relying on a Javascript backend code?

    @SnafuAI We have a stack with js backend with parts compiled to c++.
    It's mission critical and huge. Runs ok.

    @RustyCookie what do you mean with "compiled to c++"?

    Also, when I said critical piece of infrastructure I meant something like Electrical power distribution, Air Traffic Control, Gas pipeline control, Emergency Services Dispatch, etc.

    If your company does something like that then I hope they do not do business in my country.

    As I said *one* of our stacks use node C-API. And it is state organisation application with 500k users.

    And, since when backend = critical infrastructure like gas pipelines?
