Go (aka Golang) is a relatively new programming language from Google that bridges the gap, in some ways, between high-level languages (e.g., Python) and low-level languages (e.g., C). It is highly concurrent, cross platform, and compiles into fast-executing code. Now that Go has been used for a while in production, it’s time to ask: What is using it like? Where does it shine? And where does it not? In this talk, Vincent Batts reviews his experience using Golang on a number of projects, and describes what he believes to be the language’s advantages and disadvantages.
