Node.js is an event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably improve the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly provides little amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, the second any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, other platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there’re lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive web browser games or instant messengers, for instance, and numerous companies, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
