Node.js is an innovative event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable Internet apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that in contrast to conventional platforms that handle the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field once it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it indeed does make a difference if a large number of people are using a site at the same time. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be applied are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, in other words sites that need quick real-time interaction.
