Node.js is a cutting-edge, event-driven non-blocking input/output platform intended for websites that offer real-time interaction. Some instances of such websites would be online browser game portals, online chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the info transmitted between the site and its users in tiny bits, which improves the load speed and the performance of the site significantly. When a certain form with three boxes has to be filled by a particular user, for instance, usually all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one sizeable hunk of information to the 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. Therefore, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively as opposed to any conventional system, which can have a tremendous effect on the overall performance of the website. Node.js is already being employed by some of the biggest IT companies like Microsoft and Yahoo.
