Node.js is an event-driven environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used for scalable apps that need live interaction between a server and the online users and can tremendously speed up the overall performance of any Internet site that uses it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly provides small amounts of info. For instance, if a new user fills a subscription form, as soon as any information is entered in any of the fields, it’s forwarded to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, other systems wait for the whole form to be filled and one huge hunk of information is then sent to the server. Irrespective of how small the difference in the processing speed may be, things change when the website grows bigger and there are lots of people using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking sites, interactive web browser-based video games or live chat systems, for instance, and a lot of corporations, including LinkedIn, eBay and Yahoo, have already incorporated it into their services.
