Discussion on: Learn a New Language: Ruby or Go?

In my mind, pick one, however I do believe one thing, people looking at the trends can mean nothing. What also makes the trends look lower is honestly there are more languages to look at now so yes it maybe down for certain things. Many startups still use Ruby and Rails as it something to get a product out there fast as an MVP. While Go is nice, there are still some things that I find weird about it and pretty hard to get used to.

Best thing is, pick something and make cool things. If it for a job in the end, find what is the typical languages around you and learn that. If for fun, pick something, you may get halfway through the project and realize it isn't what you wanted anyways.
