Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more efficiently than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of users are browsing a site simultaneously. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. sites that support fast real-time interaction.
