Needs advice
on
Node.js
Flask
and
Django

I am a front-end guy and in the last month I've been trynig to be learn backend in python. I think python is a great language to but when i start to learn django I didn't like it because everythong is already done for you, you dont need to do much make it works and I like coding thing that take me time. I've been thinking about switching to another programing language or just learn Node js and stick with it. I need to know if django is that easy.

Node.js

I would stick with Node. Both are great frameworks but it appears Node edges over Django on performance and other aspects such as the underlying architecture. Node is also an event driven platform which comes with the added benefit of easily crafting asynchronous code.

I do not see the benefit of learning a new language when your current skill set can get the job done.

Node.js

Hi, So I would give JavaScript (and then Node.js) a chance. Using only 1 language to create BackEnd and FrontEnd is something really powerful. Also, I did not enjoy Django that much, as you mention, it kinda feel like too structured/rigit to me...
