Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a couple of fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled 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 user, but it really does make a difference if an enormous number of users are visiting a website simultaneously. A couple of instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be employed are dinner reservation portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that support quick real-time communication.
