Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment, which uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It is used by scalable web applications that require live interaction between a web server and the online users and can significantly improve the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is designed to process HTTP requests and responses and incessantly provides tiny amounts of information. For example, if a new user fills a signup form, the moment any info is inserted in any of the boxes, it is sent to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the entire form to be filled and one massive hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how tiny the difference in the processing speed may be, things change if the Internet site grows bigger and there are lots of users using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used by booking websites, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messaging apps, for example, and numerous corporations, including eBay, LinkedIn and Yahoo, have already included it in their services.
