Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, asynchronous input/output platform intended for sites which support live interaction. A few examples of such websites would be online browser-based game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation booking portals. The platform processes the info sent between the Internet site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the speed and the performance of the site tremendously. If a certain form with three boxes is expected to be filled out by a specific user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one massive hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content of the first box is processed the second it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second one. In this way, much more info can be handled a lot faster and more effectively compared to any traditional system, which can exert a noticeable effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by some of the largest IT corporations like Yahoo and Microsoft.
