Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable applications that require live interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly provides small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any info is entered in one of the fields, it’s sent to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled much faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are a lot of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive browser video games or online chats, for example, and plenty of corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
