Then you haven’t read my feedback: The Fall of the House of Node. Node has real scalability issues.

I will choose the Go language over Node any day of the week. Go is absolutely terrific at concurrency; Node’s model of concurrency is plain stupid.

The event loop has been described as “a poor man’s concurrency.”

Go was designed by Google to be a practical software engineering language. It is so far superior to JavaScript that it isn’t funny. This is why it’s destined to be a Top 10 programming language in no time.

I confidently predict that Go will displace Node within the next decade.
