Node.js is an event-driven system, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web apps that need real-time interaction between a server and the online users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and constantly supplies small amounts of info. For instance, in case a new user fills in a registration form, the moment any info is entered in one of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user has not clicked on any button, so the info is handled a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one massive hunk of information is then delivered to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change if the site expands and there are numerous individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking websites, interactive web browser-based games or live chat apps, for instance, and a lot of companies, among them eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already integrated it into their services.
