Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there are plenty of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time browser video games or live chat applications, for example, and plenty of companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
