Node.js is an event-driven runtime system, which uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web apps that require live communication between a web server and the online users and can considerably enhance the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly supplies little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any info is entered in any of the fields, it is delivered to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user has not clicked on any button, so the information is handled much faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there’re a lot of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online booking portals, interactive browser-based games or online chats, for example, and plenty of companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already incorporated it into their services.
