Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses 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 noticeably accelerate the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive browser-based video games or online chat systems, for instance, and many companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
