Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a large number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that in contrast to traditional platforms which handle the information in sizeable hunks, it handles everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information in the first field once it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference if an enormous number of users are browsing a site at the same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dinner reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that support quick live interaction.
