Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike traditional platforms that process the information in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field once it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it actually does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a site at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. websites that need fast real-time interaction.
