Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the information in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of users are navigating a site all at once. Several examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.
