Node.js is an event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that require real-time communication between a server and the worldwide web users and can noticeably boost the performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to handle HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides little bits of information. For example, in case a new user fills in a registration form, once any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one big hunk of information is then submitted to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, circumstances change in case the Internet site grows bigger and there are numerous persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking portals, interactive web browser-based video games or instant messaging apps, for instance, and lots of companies, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already implemented it in their services.
