Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems that process the info in giant chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user needs to fill in several fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an enormous number of users are browsing a website at the very same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time interaction.
