Node.js is an event-driven environment, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously boost the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny bits of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time browser video games or web-based chat systems, for instance, and numerous companies, including Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
