Node.js is an innovative, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output system used for Internet sites that support real-time communication. Some instances of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the site and its users in tiny bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. If some form with 3 boxes should be filled out by a specific user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then sent as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any traditional platform, which can exert a remarkable effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being used by some of the biggest IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
