Hi Muhammad,

Thank you!

Before using Node I'd worked with a number of different dynamic languages (mostly PHP) and had started getting more serious about JavaScript. When Node started to attract interest I check it and was excited. What I really liked about Node was how easy it was to do things that were previously difficult (writing TCP/IP applications, for example). I also like the module system and the Node Package Manager (npm). I kept playing with it and started showing it to others so they could see what it could do

T.J., from what I remember, was originally into doing graphic design then got interested in programming. He originally worked with PHP, then Ruby, and then got into Node. T.J.'s written a ton of amazing modules.

I'm not sure about Nathan or Marc's stories about how they got into Node. I should ask them... it's always interesting how people end up doing what they're doing.

Cheers,
Mike
