Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable Internet apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between conventional platforms which handle the information in sizeable chunks, it handles everything in small bits. For example, in case a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the info in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server processing time more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it surely does make a difference if a large number of users are browsing a website at the very same time. A couple of instances of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer quick real-time communication.
