Easily deploy files or directory hierarchies to a server using Grunt Something we geeks need to do all the time is deploy files between machines. Such as, deploying a directory hierarchy over to a server for staging or production use. There's a ton of ways to do this. The old-school way is a shell script with carefully crafted rsync commands. In my case I build websites using (akashacms.com) AkashaCMS and need to deploy them to the destination webserver. Until now I'd added a command to AkashaCMS solely for deployment, but I'm experimenting with Grunt to see how much can be done using the Grunt ecosystem rather than having to maintain code in AkashaCMS.
How do you choose between Node.js or other web application technologies?

There are plenty of new server side web application development technologies being developed. With the blizzard of choices before us, how do you choose between one or another? Will the newly hot web app technology really take off, or will it fizzle in a few years? For example, Node.js is getting a lot of excitement, but what about Go, or what about the mature platforms like PHP/Symfony or CakePHP?

Javascript (specifically Node.JS) for server-side web application programming

Traditionally the server side of web applications has been written in PHP, Perl, Python, Java, C/C++, etc. Javascript traditionally was implemented only in web browsers, and hence Javascript programming has been almost completely focused on the client end of web application development. It's arguably better to have the same programming language on both client and server sides of web application development, maybe. Several attempts have been made to implement javascript for server side web application development. A new javascript stack, Node.JS, is getting a lot of attention.
