I will be honest: I did not enjoy the non-blocking feeature of NodeJS at first because it requires me to do a copious amount of callbacks. I will be trying out something different next time so I do not get code that is described on this page.
I wrote a simple script to check for membership of a user in FOSSASIA’s GCI Students organization on Github. This was the first NodeJS code I ever wrote, and roonyh (Aruna Herath) encouraged me to try out other tasks. I then created a GitHub OAuth Application which logs in the user using a GitHub OAuth token. I used httpdispatcher to route my application and requests to get data from GitHub’s API. I spent a lot of time on the second application, but it was all worth it considering I now have a lot more knowledge about NodeJS than I had when I started out :). I will definitely be using NodeJS in the future.
