Node.js is a leading-edge, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform used for sites which offer real-time interaction. Some examples of such sites are online browser-based video game portals, live chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in tiny bits, which boosts the loading speed and the overall performance of the site tremendously. When some form with 3 boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for example, usually all three boxes should be filled out and the entire content is then delivered as one giant chunk of information to the web server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed the second it is inserted, before the user types anything in the second one. Thus, a lot more information can be processed much faster and more effectively in contrast to any conventional system, which can exert an immense effect on the overall performance of the site. Node.js is already being employed by some of the leading IT firms such as Yahoo and Microsoft.
