Node.js is an event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need live communication between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously enhance the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers small bits of info. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any information is entered in one of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change if the site expands and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time browser games or online chat apps, for example, and a lot of companies, among them LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
