    And a well written piece on measuring performance of Node.js compared to a LAMP stack - http://blog.loadimpact.com/2013/02/0...-js-efficency/

    Both Node.js & PHP have their pros & cons - both follow a different style of architecture & thought process & while Node.js would excel in high load apps, PHP is a matured platform with a zillion resources, very matured framework/software platforms - & its not a slouch either.

    End of the day, how you write code will determine the kind of performance you get from your app. Its just that starting out in Node.js would be a bit difficult given that support resources are very few.

    I would stick on PHP it's already been solid tested...
    But if your background on JavaScript is very good, then go ahead...
    Quality codes are optimized and tested...
