Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, the second any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there are a lot of users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser games or online chat platforms, for example, and numerous companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
