Node.js is an event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, real-time web browser games or instant messaging apps, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
