Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can substantially boost the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and ceaselessly provides small bits of information. For instance, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the second any information is inserted in any of the boxes, it is delivered to the server even if the other fields are not filled out and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the information is processed much faster. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for the entire form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then forwarded to the server. No matter how small the difference in the information processing time may be, things change if the site expands and there’re plenty of individuals using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for online reservation portals, interactive web browser video games or online chat apps, for example, and a lot of corporations, including LinkedIn, Yahoo and eBay, have already included it in their services.
