Node.js is an event-driven runtime system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that require real-time communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can significantly speed up the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny bits of info. For instance, in case a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is submitted to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed much faster. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change if the Internet site expands and there’re many users using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messengers, for example, and numerous corporations, among them Yahoo, LinkedIn and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
