Golang... Go is quite a funny language to me. I have a hard time taking it seriously, not because of the name, but because of the way it handles. Don't get me wrong, Go is a great tool to have under your belt, but it just feels very... "childish" ... to ME.

Other than the weird chills I get whilst working with it (I just had to get that off my back, for the record), I think Go is a pretty nifty language. Go has the "I can do anything! just not very well..." [0] feeling to it, and it is very much true! I don't write software in Go because it "fast!" or "great on memory!", I write software in Go because it "fast! ...", "to write in!".

One thing you might see a lot when there is talk about Go is the claim that Go hasn't "found it's niche" or "it has no real purpose". To that I say; Go's niche is it's simplicity, it's ability to introduce someone into the compiled language space, and to develop software with speed.

Who Would I Recommend Go To?

People who...

and dare I say it... anyone!
