Discussions for Go 2

The draft design discussions for Go 2 popped up in my feed recently and I felt that it would be worth re-posting to this community; I'm definitely going to provide some feedback and I'd encourage other Gophers to do the same!

I made a blog post about the new Error Handling construct! I might work on the new Error Values tomorrow, and hopefully Generics within the next week.

I really like all three drafts, although I think the parentheses notation for generics is a bit hurtful for the eyes. Hoping that gets a different syntax


I really like the new handle and check, but I really can't see how the new contract based generics fits in with the idea of being a simple/stupid language.


Just as a quick follow-up, here is my submission for suggestions on the error handling. I'd love to drop submissions for all three and if I do, I'll follow up with a post with summaries of all three.


Hey tux0r, what is it that you mean with this comment? You link a random blog post with a single link to a post related to Go, mention actual failings of a programming language, without any context.

Wouldn't be more constructive to actually explain what you mean?

What do you wish you knew about Developer Relations?

A conversation... what do DevRel professionals wish devs knew about their job? And what do devs wish they knew about DevRel?
