Node.js is an advanced event-driven platform, which is used to build scalable web apps. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it handles requests and responses between a server and a huge number of online users much more efficiently than any conventional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that in difference between traditional systems which process the info in massive hunks, it handles everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill in a few fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the moment it’s entered, utilizing the server’s processing power more efficiently. In comparison, conventional platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information in them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for one single user, but it certainly does make a difference when an enormous number of people are using a website simultaneously. A few instances of Internet 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 need fast real-time communication.
