Node Js - Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast and scalable network applications.

Features of Node.js

- Asynchronous and Event Driven
- Very Fast
- Single Threaded but Highly Scalable
- No Buffering
- License

Deno - Deno is a simple, modern and secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript that uses V8 and is built in Rust.

Features of Deno
