Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that require live communication between a server and the online users and can significantly speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies tiny amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is inserted in any of the boxes, 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 info is handled a lot faster. In comparison, conventional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how small the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the website expands and there are plenty of individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, real-time web browser video games or instant messaging apps, for instance, and plenty of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
