Node.js is an event-driven environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable apps that need live communication between a server and the online users and can substantially improve the performance of any site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly supplies little amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it is forwarded to the server even if the remaining fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is handled a whole lot faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled and one giant hunk of information is then sent to the server. Regardless of how small the difference in the information processing speed may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are many individuals using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser video games or instant messaging software, for instance, and numerous corporations, among them LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
