Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require real-time interaction between a server and the Internet users and can tremendously boost the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s 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 information is handled much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or instant messaging programs, for instance, and numerous corporations, including Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already implemented it in their services.
