Node.js is a cutting-edge, open-source, event-driven, non-blocking I/O platform designed for websites which offer interactive communication. A few instances of such sites are web-based browser game portals, web-based chat rooms or hotel booking portals. The platform handles the information exchanged between the Internet site and its users in little bits, which improves the speed and the overall performance of the website considerably. If a certain form with 3 boxes is expected to be filled out by a user, for instance, typically all three boxes should be filled and the whole content is then submitted as one big chunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the content in the first box is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user writes anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled a lot faster and more efficiently in comparison to any traditional platform, which can have a remarkable impact on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being employed by some of the largest IT corporations like Microsoft and Yahoo.
