Node.js is an innovative event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It is built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of online users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms that handle the info in huge chunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js handles the info from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out 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 certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are using a site at the very same time. A few examples of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dinner reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that support quick live interaction.
