Why Go?

There are plenty of coding languages out there, so why should one choose Go?

Well, it depends on the use case. But in most scenarios, Go is a compelling choice because of the following reasons:

  • It's a statically typed, compiled language, so there are no syntax error traps to worry about.

  • It's very simple to learn. Anyone familiar with C will feel right at home.

  • It has clear, uncomplicated syntax and terminology, unlike some other modern languages.

All this makes it super easy for a developer to ramp up and start writing and maintaining applications in Go in no time.

Ease of use aside, Go also supports a bunch of useful little features.
