Node.js is an avant-garde, open-source, event-driven, input/output platform devised for websites which offer interactive communication. Some examples of such websites are web-based browser video game portals, web-based chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. The platform processes the information sent between the website and its users in tiny bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the website tremendously. When a given form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a particular user, for example, normally all three boxes should be filled out and their entire content is then delivered as one massive chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed once it is inserted, before the user writes anything in the second one. Thus, much more information can be processed a lot faster and more effectively compared with any traditional system, which can exert a noticeable effect on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by many of the largest IT firms like Yahoo and Microsoft.
