Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and a large number of Internet users much more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For instance, if a user needs to fill out a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are visiting a website simultaneously. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live interaction.
