Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that process the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, in case a user has to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference when a large number of users are browsing a website at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time communication.
