I read about fastboot on the emberjs blog and it sounds awesome. I usually develop my backend with PHP + Laravel.
But my question is once fastboot is landed, will there be a performance difference between a nodejs and a whatever (php, ruby, go, …) backend? I was just wondering, because if nodejs will be indeed faster, I might invest some time to start writing my future applications with that.
By faster I don’t mean just the processing of the backend itself, but I can imagine that with nodejs you might not have to make an external extra request to fetch the data.
Am I wrong about that or will it be just the same with nodejs as it is with another language and there will be an extra request to get the data ember data needs.
