Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable Internet apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of online users much more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in small bits. For instance, in case a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single user, but it really does make a difference if a huge number of people are using a website at once. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick live communication.
