Node.js is an open-source, event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can substantially speed up the performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly delivers tiny amounts of information. For instance, in case a new user fills out a subscription form, once any info is inserted in one of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site expands and there are numerous persons using it at the same time. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser games or online chat portals, for example, and lots of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
