Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously accelerate the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, if a new user fills out a signup form, the moment any information is inserted in one of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one big chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing speed may be, things change when the site grows bigger and there’re many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking portals, real-time browser-based games or instant messaging apps, for example, and numerous corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
