Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable applications. It’s built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of users more effectively than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional systems which handle the info in giant hunks, it processes everything in small bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill out a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it actually does make a difference if an immense number of users are visiting a site at the same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words sites that support quick real-time communication.
