Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which process the info in giant hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, in case a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field as soon as it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it truly does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are navigating a website at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be employed are online dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need quick live interaction.
