Node.js is an open-source, event-driven platform, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can considerably accelerate the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies little bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a registration form, the second any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the other boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one large chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the Internet site expands and there’re lots of persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based video games or live chat portals, for example, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
