Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously boost the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills a subscription form, once any info is entered in any of the boxes, it is forwarded to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the entire 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 processing time may be, things change in case the website expands and there’re lots of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking sites, interactive browser games or live chat portals, for example, and many corporations, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
