What are differences in the frameworks Next.js which I've been hearing about a lot lately and Node.js?

Lately I've been hearing that a lot of companies are building using the Next.Js framework. Is that something that might be introduced down the road on Team Treehouse?

Next.js is more similar to React.js in being a front-end framework (and it is based on React.js), where Node.js is a back-end JavaScript engine. Next.js would typically be used with Node.js.
