not get new language standards every few months (like C#, Rust and Go do

Go gets new releases every 6 months but has a backwards compatibility guarantee so anything you learned 5 years ago is still correct today. There may be slightly better ways of doing things now but it wont be big.

The changes in Go the past few years in terms of the language have been very minimal. The main changes have been around new libraries in the standard lib, performance and tooling.
