Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably boost the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills out a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser video games or online chat programs, for example, and plenty of corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
