Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional systems that process the info in huge chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a huge number of people are browsing a website at the same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time interaction.
