Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used for scalable web applications that require real-time interaction between a server and the worldwide web users and can considerably improve the overall performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of information. For example, if a new user fills out a signup form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one giant hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Regardless of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, circumstances change when the Internet site expands and there’re numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time browser video games or online chat systems, for example, and numerous companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
