What is Node.js?


Node.js is an open source, cross-platform runtime environment that is typically used for developing server-side web, and networking applications.

Node.js applications are written in JavaScript but it is not a JavaScript framework. Many of its basic modules are written in JavaScript, and developers can write new modules in the same language.

The JavaScript runtime is built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine and it works by using an event driven, non-blocking I/O model that is designed to make it lightweight and efficient.

Node.js is an integral component for many companies. Find out who’s using it on the next page.
