Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to develop scalable apps. It uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and a huge number of Internet users much more effectively than any traditional system. What makes Node.js exceptional is the fact that unlike conventional systems which handle the info in sizeable hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For instance, when a user has to fill in a couple of fields on a website, Node.js handles the information from the first field the moment it is entered, utilizing the server processing time more efficiently. In comparison, traditional 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 negligible for one single user, but it indeed does make a difference if a large number of people are navigating a website at the same time. A few examples of sites where Node.js can be used are dinner booking portals, web-based chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. sites that offer fast real-time communication.
