Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled 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 user, but it really does make a difference when a large number of people are navigating a site at the same time. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.
