Node.js is an open-source, event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable web applications that need live communication between a web server and the online users and can significantly speed up the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides tiny bits of information. For instance, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed a lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one giant chunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how little the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change if the site grows bigger and there’re many individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, interactive browser games or online chat software, for example, and numerous companies, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already integrated it into their services.
