Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly accelerate the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, as soon as any info is entered in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there are numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based games or instant messaging systems, for example, and lots of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
