Developing with a dynamic language is a little painful. It happens a small typo will cause some time to debug. I'm wondering how comfortable developing server side with Node. It's different with client side. We have no choice on client side. But there are lots of good languages for the server side.

Hi Qunfeng,

That's a good point... dynamic languages aren't to everyone's taste. One way to get strong typing when creating Node.js application is to use something like MicroSoft's TypeScript (http://www.typescriptlang.org/) which is a superset of JavaScript that supports strong typing (and classes, modules, and interfaces) and compiles to JavaScript.

Cheers,
Mike
