Node js is an open source platform for creating applications that use JavaScript on server side as well as on the client side. Its runtime environment interprets JavaScript using Google's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js has an event-driven architecture capable of asynchronous I/O that makes it lightweight and efficient.

It is the most popular language in a recent survey conducted by Stack Overflow.
