This post is about exploring Node.js with Deta Cloud.
After getting back to the roots with a static site and working with Node.js on real projects in the static world, I wanted to try it on a server to dive a little bit deeper and understand how it works by itself.
Quest & luck
So, I started to search for a free Node.js hosting and it took me a while, with a lot of chance, to land on an awesome project called Deta. The great developers behind Deta define it as The Cloud for Doers & Dreamers and describe it as the universe's most developer friendly cloud platform. Honestly speaking, I can only confirm those declarations because I've tried some other platforms !
Deta gives you :
- blazing fast micro servers, called Micros, to get your apps to live.
- fast, scalable and secure NoSQL database with unlimited storage, called Base.
- safely encrypted 10GB cloud storage, called Drive.
All of those services are completely and 100% FREE with no catch at all !
The amazing part of Deta is it's simplicity.! One statement on Deta's homepage tells everything about it :
You don't need a degree to use Deta
Since my first_micro, Deta gave me, and give me everyday, the opportunity to learn, apply, test, deploy and evolve as a developer in many ways.
I was finally able to understand how much power and flexibility a Node.js server can give if configured correctly. I've also been able to work for real with GraphQL without DB adapters/connectors. And so on...
Deta is, for me, the best Node.js platform you could ever dream of ! Deta is made by great developers with developers concerns in mind ! Deta's spirit reflects the generosity and kindness of it's team who's always there to help !
Thank you Deta 💘
