Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with the Google V8 JavaScript engine. It’s used by scalable web applications that need real-time communication between a server and the online users and can noticeably accelerate the performance of any website that uses it. Node.js is designed to handle HTTP requests and responses and incessantly delivers small amounts of info. For example, if a new user fills in a signup form, once any info is inserted in one of the fields, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the fields are not filled out and the user has not clicked any button, so the info is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, traditional systems wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge chunk of information is then sent to the server. No matter how little the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there are lots of people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by booking portals, real-time web browser-based video games or instant messaging clients, for instance, and many companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already integrated it into their services.
