Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require live communication between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any info is entered in any of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one large hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change if the website expands and there’re a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and numerous corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
