Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the online users and can substantially improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers little bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in any of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive browser-based games or instant messengers, for instance, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
