Almost a year ago, in May 2020, Deno was launched.
Deno is the outcome of Node.js’ creator (Ryan Dahl) experience of using Node.js, after almost a decade of leaving its core team.
However, as all the great creations, Node.js comes with its flaws. And for Ryan, its creator, they were a little itchy, especially when he got back using Node.js again to write simple scripts, after spending a few years without using it.
I previously explored some of Deno’s premises and how it addresses specific Node.js problems in another article named Adventures in deno land.
If you’re interested in getting to know Deno even better, I recently wrote a book on it, called Deno Web Development.
