Node.js is an advanced event-driven system, which is used to create scalable applications. It’s built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes requests and responses between a server and an immense number of users much more effectively than any traditional platform. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the information in large hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill in a few fields on an Internet site, Node.js processes the information in the first field the moment it is inserted, utilizing the server’s processing resources more efficiently. In contrast, traditional systems 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 insignificant for a single user, but it actually does make a difference when an immense number of individuals are using a site at the same time. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be employed are dinner booking portals, chat rooms or interactive browser-based video game portals, in other words sites that offer quick real-time interaction.
