Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable Internet applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In contrast, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it really does make a difference when an enormous number of people are using a site at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick live interaction.
