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..."  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!".
 Having the aforementioned quality to it is not particularly a bad thing, I think it actually benefits Go!
Now, allow me to list some pros and cons that I have to say about Golang with some things to note while reading:
These are ...
Reasons for anyone to learn or to use Go!
Nitpicks, not deal-breakers!
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.
and dare I say it... anyone!
