Oh i get it now, you're a stauch member of the copy-n-paste, aka they said, he said, she said group . .
when you're willing to show a practical demonstration, quote me. Till then, take care amigo.

See why i said you are unwilling to learn. I can bet you didn't read any of the articles i posted. Oh and the OFFICIAL DOC i posted was "he said, she said"? You're just shortsighted and wont go out of your way like we have to benchmark these things.

Okay let me educate you, let's do a simple bubble sort. We would Iterate over a million times over a 10-item array and sort.


node.js


function bubbleSort(input) {
var n = input.length;
var swapped = true;
while (swapped) {
swapped = false;
for (var i = 0; i < n; i++) {
if (input[i - 1] > input [i]) {
[input[i], input[i - 1]] = [input[i - 1], input[i]];
swapped = true;
}
}
}
}

for (var c = 0; c < 1000000; c++) {
const toBeSorted = [1, 3, 2, 4, 8, 6, 7, 2, 3, 0];
bubbleSort(toBeSorted);
}


golang

package main

var toBeSorted [10]int = [10]int{1, 3, 2, 4, 8, 6, 7, 2, 3, 0}

func bubbleSort(input [10]int) {
n := len(input)
swapped := true
for swapped {
swapped = false
for i := 1; i < n; i++ {
if input[i-1] > input[i] {
input[i], input[i-1] = input[i-1], input[i]
swapped = true
}
}
}
}

func main() {
for c := 0; c < 1000000; c++ {
bubbleSort(toBeSorted)
}
}


Now run and benchmark those. Or, I should also post code to teach you how to benchmark from bash??

This brings be back to my earlier statement, I AM SURE YOU'VE NEVER WRITTEN A SINGLE LINE OF CODE IN GO. If you had, and actually done benchmarking, you wont come here saying stuff you dont know.

I have said what I said and when i say stuffs i dont say them out of emotions . .
also please bear in mind that many coys do migrate their tech stack and yes, while some do so for better scalibility and performance, some also do so
to meet a specific use case only offered by that language in "convenience" . . .
And yes, people have called their apps shitty . . php guy said so
lets come down home a bit more . . to node packages . . even the creators of moment said you should probably not use it anymore
and offered recommendation . .but guess what, after practical test among the community, between stuffs like moment, dayjs, luxon etc . . they still found out moment held its ground . . only lacking for too much memory consumption cos it lacked tree-shaking . . .
But I'll like you to demonstrate to us on the same machine how a simple Go app will crush a simple node js app with it's ability to handle millions of routines and nodejs just being able to handle, uhmmn, 1,000 concurrent request? or 2,0000? right?

He said emotions, lol. Anyways, I’m a huge advocate of using what works for you. But for you to say node is as fast as Go.... HELL NO! Like I said earlier, in normal stuff like simple crud operations, they would perform similarly. The difference comes in CPU intensive tasks!

You said concurrency? Lol.... tell me how a runtime that operates on only two threads would outperform a language that can natively spin thousands to millions of goroutines at will depending on your Ram?

Oh, you want to argue that node uses more than two threads? Here’s an article from the official docs

https://nodejs.org/ru/docs/guides/dont-block-the-event-loop/#what-code-runs-on-the-worker-pool

One thread for the event loop, another for the worker pool. Or you don’t agree with the official docs too?

Let me leave you with a graph and a link with an article to the graph

https://medium.com/@kevalpatel2106/why-should-you-learn-go-f607681fad65

I can bet you haven’t written one single line of Golang, that’s why you’re saying this. An interpreted language running in a runtime environment running faster than a statically typed compiled language that compiles ahead of time with concurrency built into it... smh

Lol, what you're probably thinking is that the node event loop handles most of the processing whereas in fact, it is sent of for i/o computations at the cpu's thread . . .
Nodejs is probably a bad idea for cpu intensive work though, such as object modeling and 3d rendering
but ur Go will be the first to give up if it goes head-to-head in terms of malloc and garbage collection.

C’mon man, stop making me laugh, an environment (this is for other readers that confuse node as a language, it’s just a JavaScript runtime) has a better memory allocation than a compiled language that is compiled ahead of time to native code? Really? Leemao

Uber, Upguard, Koding, etc. have migrated to go. They don’t know about node shey? Or they’ve never heard of it before? Abi they’ve never used it and saw that it didn’t scale well? Smh, plain simple, JavaScript would never outperform go in anything... NEVER! Talk less of a runtime environment for it.

Talking about garbage collection and malloc �

Comparing a “single threaded” environment to a language that can spin up thousands of goroutines without breaking a sweat.

The only thing node beats go in is the developer tools that are readily available now. And that’s because more devs are on the JavaScript side. Performance, Scalability, Concurrency... Go beats it hands down.

Before I leave, the creator of node.Js said and I quote verbatim “That said, I think Node is not the best system to build a massive server web. I would use Go for that. And honestly, that’s the reason why I left Node. It was the realization that: oh, actually, this is not the best server-side system ever.”

And here’s a link to the ycombinator post
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15767713

So tell me, do you know more than the person that created node

Donpre:

Node is faster. On par or just slower than Go

Only matters for large apps though

Huh? Did I just read “on par or ‘just’ slower” than go?

No interpreted language would ever run as fast as or ‘just’ slower than a compiled language. Never!

Sure, in most basic stuffs that aren’t demanding, they’ll perform similarly. But, in major stuff, Go would kill it. I can spin up millions of goroutines to handle cpu intensive tasks concurrently at an extremely cheap rate (just around 4KB per goroutine). Wanna try that on node and watch the event loop choke?

Lol

No offense, but you made no iota of sense in this post. Matches are won with skill, determination, and most importantly, preparation. The teams of 94 and 96 were far superior to what we have now, and boy were they determined. Did you see Croatia pray even once? Silly ass beliefs. Instead of them, immediately after the half time whistle, to quickly head back to the changing room, address their issues and get their shit together for the second half, they were there wasting valuable minutes in pointless prayers.

Now you see the major problem we have in this country? Senseless supernatural beliefs. Praying like the Croatians are any less God’s children. Nonsense!!!

take your respect to the kitchen by doing the needful.keep your kitchen neat,sweep and scrub.
don't be a lazy youth.

so long she's your girlfriend and not wife, you have no reason whatsoever to complain about not being birthed,brushed or cooked for.Dafuq,what are you guys turning ladies into??

is she your slave or your Nanny?


As a guy, when I go visiting my friends, they offer food as usual. After eating, I feel uncomfortable when I’m not allowed to go drop the dishes in the kitchen and wash them myself. It’s only if the host is persistent that I don’t go to the kitchen that I’ll permit my dish to be taken and cleaned up by someone else.

Now back to the matter, the girl went over, they had drinks and food, hence she had a hand in the kitchen litter. If she helped in packing the stuff to the kitchen and left em there, then that’s a no-no! The least she could have done to earn some respect was to do her dishes while having the courtesy of doing the guys dishes too. But, if the guy was the one that carted all those junk to the kitchen, well he can’t blame the girl, as he said, it was the girl’s first time there, some girls are rather restrictive when in an environment for the first time. So they would just play the guest until they become very familiar with that environment.

Well I guess there are different angles to see this though.

Personally, if a girl comes over to my place for the first time and she starts cleaning and doing stuff, well, it would be weird to me, more like she’s trying hard to please me or something which I’m not a fan of.

This guy is probably an 18 year old kid

Why would i want my phone number to show when i call Nigeria or some other countries ??

That's why i don't have a phone number or SIM card in my phone, i just download a textme app on my phone and get a free phone number

This is 2017 and not 1965, no one trips for foreign phone numbers anymore

Yes you can do that quite alright. But perhaps the OP (and other people don't know about this, moreover, u have to pay to get that number on textme active, ITS NOT FREE). The main point here is that, when you receive calls from outside, it shows a local number instead of the international number, and when you try calling that local number back (trying to reach ur international counterpart) IT NEVER GOES THRU. Happens to me recently, I receive calls from our branch head in the U.K., but when I try calling the local number it shows, it never goes. I can only call him back because I have his U.K. Number saved on my fone. What of those that don't have his number, how do they reach him back when he calls them. So u see, the OP is right!

To be honest with you, getting a PayPal account isn't easy as a Nigerian. I'm not sure you have earned in fiverr and wanted to withdraw, because PayPal isn't the only option there.

I use payoneer to withdraw. Once I withdraw, I will sell to exchangers because the exchange rate is better compared to what I will have if I try to withdraw directly from the ATM.

Exactly, u're correct bros, I've not gotten to the point where I want to withdraw. Please can you put me through on this payoneer thing. How to set it up without making mistakes/errors.

Bigboyz32:
I joined Fiverr on September 2015 and have generated over 6 million naira from it.

Prior to joining, I used to get angry with my friend who was a freelancer on Fiverr.

We were running an offline joint-venture business back then. Every minute he could steal from time, he will quickly log in to Fiverr to do what I didn’t know.

Back then, I always saw Fiverr as a $5 marketplace and I couldn’t imagine how he would always dedicate more time to his Fiverr account instead of our offline business which was making us good money…..(so I thought).

I didn’t miss any opportunity to make joke of him for slaving away on Fiverr and he wasn’t deterred at all by it……possibly he’d be laughing at me in his mind.

It was not until my fiancé finished school and was looking for what could keep her busy that the veil covering my eyes was removed.

I told my friend to teach her Fiverr so she could keep herself busy with it.

Her first month on Fiverr, she made $450.
That was huge compared to the time she spent on it.

It was then that I knew that there was something big happening in Fiverr and that was possibly why my friend gave good attention to it.

This was in 2014.

Fast-forward to 2015, our joint venture business started going down and I needed another supplementary income lest I go hungry.
My friend told me to come over to Fiverr and I lazily agreed.

My first month on Fiverr, I made $950……double of my income in the offline business I was running.

What really drew me in wasn’t really the money, but the fact that I wasn’t bothered about overhead, paying staff, going on marketing, etc. I just stayed back in the office, worked few hours per day and that was all.

I became really obsessed with Fiverr that I had to close down my offline business to focus on Fiverr…..that was very silly to many people, but it wasn’t to me.

Fast forward to 2017, I have earned as high as $3,000 in some months, with my lowest month being $850.

I want to share five important lessons I learnt from Fiverr. I believe if you learn it from me and apply it, you can earn a full time income, bigger than what many WORKING CLASS people earn.

Here are the five lessons:

1. More money is made in the upsell:

If you are in the internet marketing space, you will understand the importance of upsell.

Let me use a practical example to explain what an upsell is.

When you order a product from Amazon or Ebay, you would see something like: “those who bought this product also bought this”.

The try to show you other products you might possibly need based on your current purchase. They know you are still in the mood of buying and so may possibly buy more.

With this, they make more money from you while they can.

The same thing applies to Fiverr.

Each service you render on Fiverr will invariably have lots of interrelated service.
For example, I’m copywriter on Fiverr and I know that anyone who hires me to write the content of their sales page, will invariably need email copies and squeeze page copies.

So when you place the order for a sales page copy, I will quickly respond to you, thanking you for placing the order and recommending those other services to you. I won’t just recommend, I will tell you reasons why you need them if you want to maximize your sales and conversion.
Most times, the client agrees because they just bought and so I’ll make more money than I would have normally gotten from the client.
This has enabled me earn up to $700 from a single client in one order.

You can also apply this and see how your revenue will increase, even when your client base is not increasing.

Another method of using this is through gig extras.
Add all those upsells in your gig extra so the buyer can easily see it and make a choice.
If they don’t, then you communicate and convince the buyer yourself as I described above.

2. Don’t rely on Fiverr traffic


Fiverr sure has a lot of traffic that can help you get sales. But if you are serious about growing your sales and revenue, you don’t need to rely on Fiverr traffic.

The millions of traffic that Fiverr gets monthly is not for you alone. It is meant to be shared among the thousands of freelancers they have on their platform.

What is the probability that you will get a good chunk of that traffic to your gigs?

Of course, you can use some Fiverr SEO tactics to receive more visits to your gigs, but you should bear in mind that Fiverr algorithm for gig ranking keeps changing too and what you did today to get yourself ranked, might make you enter the second page by tomorrow.

Many top sellers on Fiverr have been hit by these algorithm changes, so you are not immune to it.

The best thing for you is to optimize your gig for Fiverr searches and in addition, get more traffic direct to your gig from outside Fiverr.

Use social media, forums and even paid ads to get more targeted traffic to your gigs.

Trust me that many business owners don’t even know about Fiverr. When you reach out to them through these platforms and let them know they can get a high quality service at a cheaper price on Fiverr, they will quickly move to it.

37% of my Fiverr revenue comes from clients who saw my gig from outside the Fiverr platform.

You can also use this tactics to make more sales and revenue even if Fiverr changes their algorithm every day.

3. Bidding early matters a lot…being 10th or down isn’t cool

On Fiverr, I’m not just a seller (freelancer), I also buy services there too. So I have had the opportunity of seeing things from both the buyer and the seller end.

When you visit the buyer request section, you will see over 20 sellers bidding on a single project.

For the buyer, they are usually overwhelmed with requests and so they end up interacting with the first 5-10 bidders. The buyer might even make a buying decision from the first or second bidder.

What this means is that if you want to increase your chances of getting the job, make sure you frequent the buyer request section and always bid on request as soon as possible so that you will be among the first five persons to bid.

That way, the buyer may see you and consider you among his options when making a buying decision.

Additionally, make sure your bidding proposal stands out with its content, else the buyer will just ignore your post and go for other bidders.

4. Your gig package is meant to hoodwink the seller to pay more

Fiverr introduced the gig packages last year and that to me is one of the best updates they have done since I joined them in 2015.

The three gig packages enable you to charge your clients higher amount for more services. It’s meant to make your buyer prefer to pay higher hoping to get more quality at lesser amount.

For example, if you offer article writing services, your basic package could be 100 word SEO article for $5. The next package would be 500 words for $15, while the third package would be 1000 words for $25.

This way, your client would think that 1000 words is the best since he will get more value (1000 words) for less ($25 instead of $50). So they will probably ignore the $5 and go for the $25.

This is how I package my gigs to make the buyer happily pay more.

Repurpose your gig packages so that your buyers see more value in paying you more.

5. You must see Fiverr as a real business

One of my most favorite business quotes is this: “if you want your business to give you full time income, then you must give it full time attention”.

If you want to make a sizeable income from Fiverr, then be ready to see and treat it like a real business.

By this, I mean that you should spend good enough time getting new customers both within and outside Fiverr platform. You should also endeavor to over-satisfy your clients by delivering quality service on time all the time.

Quality and on-time delivery will lead to your clients referring you to their friends offline….it has happened to me multiple times.

Even though, I now work less on Fiverr (I don’t drive external traffic to my gigs and I don’t even visit the buyer request section again) due to other internet businesses I’m trying to learn, I still get a considerable amount of sales and revenue from Fiverr.

Fiverr is not just a place for $5 jobs; you can make a full-time living from it if you will take time to learn more about it in addition to the lessons I just shared with you here.

Good luck to you.

Sorry for quoting the whole thing lol. But I have just a question I think u can help me out with. I'm tired of being tossed around by people claiming to know stuff about fiver and at the end of the day no result.

I am a web developer/designer so I'll most likely create gigs in that category.

1. Mode of Payment. From my little experience, I know for sure that fiver only accepts PayPal as payment option. We in Nigeria, under normal circumstances can't receive money with our PayPal, now how do I counter this. I would love for you to put a brother through on how to receive money with a valid PayPal account. Setting it up and stuff.

Would really appreciate if you can put me through on this one, asked a couple of people before but all they do is take me round and round and at the end of the day leave me hanging cuz they don't know what they are doing too.

Thanks.

The catch to it though was, if he laughed at how funny the face looked at any time, he would run mad for life.
