Lucky! I wrote a small internal app in node for my company that relied on an IMAP library. 3 months after launch, someone upgraded the library and my app stopped working. Stack traces were incomprehensible. No “how to upgrade” documentation in sight.

So I spent 2 hours and rewrote it in Java 8 with Maven.

Issues all gone. Node has some work to do before I’ll consider touching it again.
