It's time to take a look back at the year in all things Node.js. To do so, I've taken a look over data from the popular Node Weekly newsletter.
The Node Weekly email digest is read by over 45,000 developers — this list is a look at what they clicked on in 2019.
The Node highlights of 2019:
The curiosity around Deno remains! Ryan Dahl originally created Node about ten years ago, and here he breaks down this new approach. (Note: Audio is bad for the first few minutes but gets better.)
Since the release of Node 10.5, the new
worker_threads module opened up the possibility of building multi-threaded Node apps. It's been enabled by default since Node 11.7 so this post runs through what it's about and how to use it.
This short and sweet article from Phil Nash shared a few neat tidbits that you may not be familiar with, such as using
npx license mit to quickly produce a license or
npx gitignore node to create a default
.gitignore file suited to Node apps.
A handy examination of the differences between three popular server-side rendering frameworks.

An introduction to executing complex operations in Node with the
worker_threads module that was first introduced with Node 10.5 and has since been enabled by default.
