I spend about 30% of my time system side in Go, and the rest in Node.js. I'm working to migrate almost all of my time to Go. The language is fun to work in and, personally, the overall experience is much improved over Node.js. It's exciting to see the momentum behind the language and the great people who are attracted to it.

Are Node.js and Go used in separate systems or do they have their own special places?

At a startup I worked for we used node.js prototype/sometimes v1.0 and Go for everything after. We shifted to writing everything in Go as we reach a point were we were more efficient from an effort standpoint in Go.
