Node.js is an avant-garde event-driven system, which is used to set up scalable Internet apps. It is built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine and it processes HTTP requests and responses between a web server and an enormous number of users more effectively than any other system. What makes Node.js special is the fact that in contrast to conventional systems which handle the information in massive hunks, it processes everything in tiny bits. For example, if a user needs to fill a couple of fields on a site, Node.js processes the information from the first field the moment it is typed, utilizing the server’s processing resources more effectively. 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 stay in the queue. The difference may be insignificant for a single person, but it undoubtedly does make a difference when an immense number of users are using a website at once. A few examples of websites where Node.js can be applied are dining reservation portals, live chat rooms or interactive browser video game portals, i.e. websites that offer fast real-time interaction.
