Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the second it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a website at the very same time. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words websites that offer fast real-time interaction.
