Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable applications that need live communication between a web server and the online users and can noticeably speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there’re numerous individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, interactive web browser-based games or online chat systems, for instance, and lots of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
