Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need live interaction between a web server and the online users and can noticeably enhance the performance of any Internet site that’s using it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little bits of info. For example, if a new user fills a registration form, the moment any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, traditional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one sizeable chunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how little the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change in case the website grows bigger and there are plenty of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online reservation portals, interactive web browser-based video games or web-based chat portals, for example, and plenty of corporations, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
