Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users more effectively than any conventional platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in difference between traditional platforms which process the info in giant chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info from the first field once it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more effectively. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a site at the same time. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need quick live interaction.
