Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to build scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any traditional system. What makes Node.js one of a kind is the fact that unlike conventional platforms that handle the info in huge hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users stay in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when a large number of individuals are browsing a website at once. Several instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser game portals, in other words websites that need quick real-time communication.
