Which is better for web application development GOLang or Node JS ?
GOLang is developed by Google and inherits most of the properties of C and Python. It’s designed to write code executable on the server.
Performance, Scalability and Concurrency
Ease of Use
GoLang is still evolving and thus has limited third party lib support unlike nodejs which has tons of libraries to ease up the task for you.
GoLang has a difficult error checking mechanism which calls for explicit error checks everywhere in the code. On the other hand, nodejs uses try, catch blocks like Java, making things a little easier on that front.
Hope that answers your question ?
