Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and an immense number of users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the info in massive chunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field as soon as it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it indeed does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a site at the very same time. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that support quick real-time communication.
