Node.js is an innovative, event-driven I/O platform built for websites that offer interactive communication. Several examples of such sites would be online browser-based video game portals, online chat rooms or accommodation reservation portals. Node.js processes the information transmitted between the site and its users in little bits, which accelerates the speed and the overall performance of the site significantly. If a given form with three boxes is expected to be filled by a particular user, for instance, normally all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then sent as one giant hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed once it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. Therefore, much more info can be processed a lot faster and more efficiently compared to any other platform, which can exert a substantial impact on the site’s performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the top IT corporations such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
