How Node.js Works

In this lesson, we’ll gain an understanding of how Node.js works internally and be introduced to the reactor pattern, which is the heart of the asynchronous nature of Node.js. We’ll go through the main concepts behind the pattern, such as the single-threaded architecture and the non-blocking I/O, and we’ll see how this creates the foundation for the entire Node.js platform.
