Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that require live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and incessantly delivers small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, the second any info is inserted in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there are lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for booking sites, real-time web browser-based video games or live chats, for example, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
