Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to create scalable web apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles HTTP requests and responses between a server and an immense number of online users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js unique is the fact that unlike traditional platforms which handle the info in huge hunks, it handles everything in small bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill in several fields on a website, Node.js processes the information from the first field as soon as it’s inserted, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional systems wait for all the fields to be filled and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for one single user, but it truly does make a difference if an immense number of users are navigating a website at the same time. A couple of examples of websites where Node.js can be used are dining reservation portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser-based game portals, i.e. websites that need fast live communication.
