Golang and Node.js are two brilliant technologies that help to build reliable and highly efficient backends. Both have their clear benefits, as well as specific drawbacks. Node.js often tops the development rankings, yet Go does not lag behind. When it comes to intensive data processing and server-side development, Go has no equal.
In the battle between Node.js and Golang, who wins? After reading this article, it may seem that Go takes the prize. However, it's not that simple and there are no clear winners in the Golang vs Node.js battle.
The only way to make the right choice between the technologies is to correctly evaluate the type and characteristics of your project.
Go is a better choice for microservices and loaded enterprise-scale projects. Node.js can be a great tool for building server-side applications, complex single-page applications and intensive data streaming programs such as video chats, for example. In any case, you should always seek advice and help from a specialist before you choose a technical stack because only professionals can take all the nuances of a project into account.
