Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms that handle the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it truly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are navigating a site simultaneously. A few instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.
