Node.js is a leading-edge event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and an enormous number of users more efficiently than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in contrast to traditional systems which handle the information in giant hunks, it processes everything in little bits. For example, if a user has to fill in a few fields on a site, Node.js handles the information from the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional systems wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the info in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it surely does make a difference if an immense number of users are using a site at the same time. A few instances of sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that support fast real-time interaction.
