Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms which process the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, in case a user needs to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it surely does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a website all at once. Several instances of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need quick live communication.
