Node has become the most popular thing for some reasons like it’s easy to learn and code, fast data streaming, real time web application, easy scalability and many more.
Node is helpful for developing applications that essential a persistent connection from the browser to the server and is often used for real-time applications such as newsfeed conversation and web push notifications. With the help of Node.js, you create APIs, web apps, mobile apps like backend services.

Features of Node.js
Some of the major factors that make Node.js the primary choice of software developers.
Asynchronous and Event Driven:
Asynchronous and Event Driven − All APIs of Node.js library are asynchronous, that is, non-blocking. It actually means a Node.js based server does not at all wait for an API to return data. The server goes to the upcoming API after calling it and an informing apparatus of Events of Node.js helps the server to get a reaction from the previous API call.
Single Threaded but Highly Scalable:
One Threaded but Highly Scalable − Node.js make use of one threaded model with event looping. Event mechanism helps the server to retort during a non-blocking way and makes the server highly scalable as opposed to traditional servers which create limited threads to handle requests.
Extreme Data Streaming Capability:
Data streaming can be utilized to its fullest to generate some of the finest asset attributes like processing files at the time of transfer.
Node.js is released under the MIT license
