Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live 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 intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in one of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the site grows bigger and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and lots of corporations, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
