Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that require live communication between a server and the Internet users and can considerably speed up the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly supplies little amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a registration form, as soon as any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled much faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change if the website expands and there’re a lot of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive browser video games or web-based chat platforms, for example, and plenty of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
