Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable applications. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike conventional systems that process the info in sizeable chunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. As an illustration, when a user has to fill out a couple of fields on a site, Node.js handles the information in the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, other systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single person, but it absolutely does make a difference if an immense number of individuals are visiting a website all at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be used are online dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that support quick live communication.
