Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that require real-time interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, once any information is inserted in one of the fields, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is handled a lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site grows bigger and there are many users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, real-time web browser-based games or live chat clients, for example, and plenty of companies, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already implemented it in their services.
