Node.js is a cutting-edge event-driven platform, which is used to set up scalable apps. It uses Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a web server and a large number of Internet users more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which process the information in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in little bits. As an illustration, if a user needs to fill out a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the info in the first field the second it’s inserted, utilizing the server’s processing power more effectively. In contrast, other platforms wait for all the fields to be filled out and while the information from them is being processed, requests from other users remain in the queue. The difference may be negligible for a single person, but it truly does make a difference when an immense number of people are navigating a site at the very same time. A few instances of Internet sites where Node.js can be used are dining booking portals, online chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, in other words websites that need fast real-time communication.
