Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to develop scalable web applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of Internet users much more effectively than any other platform. What makes Node.js special is the fact that unlike traditional systems which handle the info in large hunks, it handles everything in little bits. For example, when a user has to fill out a few fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field the second it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing capabilities more efficiently. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single person, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of individuals are browsing a website at once. Several examples of sites where Node.js can be applied are online dinner reservation portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast real-time communication.
