I just wanted to ask if the programming language used in this book is Nodejs?

I hope it's not.

I have read about a half of the written book and there where not a single line of code. A few times Node where taken as an examples of a place where some specific aspects made good, but without any details about Node itself. As far as I can see this book is for architects, so there are mostly conceptions and diagrams but not the implementation detailes

Er, yeah. Pretty much everybody can read JavaScript smilie

And yes, I write Node.js for a living. And you can't write big applications in JavaScript because the language does not help you out. So you end up needing microservices a lot more than other people.

Apart from Chapter 9, there isn't a callback in sight! The microservice architecture is definitively something you can use in any language.
