[Video 282] Vincent Batts: Golang — The good, the bad, & the ugly

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.
