Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of users much more efficiently than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it actually does make a difference if a huge number of individuals are browsing a site at once. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick live communication.
