Node.js is an event-driven runtime environment built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It is used for scalable web apps that need live interaction between a web server and the Internet users and can significantly enhance the performance of any website that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP requests and responses and constantly delivers little amounts of info. For example, in case a new user fills in a subscription form, the moment any information is entered in any of the boxes, it’s submitted to the server even if the rest of the boxes are not filled and the user hasn’t clicked on any button, so the info is processed a lot faster. In contrast, conventional platforms wait for the whole form to be filled out and one huge hunk of information is then delivered to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the processing time may be, things change when the site expands and there are numerous people using it at the same time. Node.js can be used by online booking portals, real-time browser-based video games or live chat programs, for instance, and plenty of corporations, among them Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn, have already incorporated it into their services.
