What is so great about Golang?

#go

Golang is great for creating network services or microservices. It lets you β€œget-stuff-done”.

If you’re already familiar with other C-derived languages (Java, Obj-C) then it's easy to learn.

An experienced programmer can pick up the basics of Go in a short period of time.

Concurrency and communication are very easy to deal with in Go and these help with scale. This is important in the cloud environment.

Golang is a programming language you might have heard about a lot during the last couple of years, it was created only in 2009.

Here's a list of advantages of Golang:

  • Golang is open-source but backed up by a large corporation
  • It’s fast:
    • to learn
    • to build up
    • to compile
    • to arrange and install
    • to scamper
  • Go is a modern language
  • Golang is Simple
  • It is Concurrent
  • Static code analysis
  • Garbage collected language
  • Testing Support
