    Golang is a shit globohomosexual language made by Google, it was made as a criticism of C++ yet fails to surpass C++ in any capacity
    It is just an inferior language overall

      Kino syntax and sane features out of the box. Basically halfway point between C and Python.

      It wasn't designed to replace low level systems programming. It was designed to be a decent language for backends and services instead having to work with either C++, Java, or Python. On top of that, it was made by unix boomers that praise C and hate C++.

      Exactly this. Great for working with morons in a professional setting since its focused, simple, and prevents you from shooting yourself in the foot. There are more fun languages for personal projects, but Go is hard to pass on for web servers and CLI tools due to its performance, tooling, and ease of use.

      last I checked all the Go jobs were either exclusively for senior DevOps guys or located in China. It's not irrelevant but unfortunately it seems to be in a specific niche. I wish there were more Go webshit jobs

      >battered wife syndrome
      this is the best way to describe Go, it's the language you settle for because you think (or maybe know) that it's the best you can hope for in this garbage industry. I like it, not due to what it is but what it's not. It's mediocre in pretty much every way, but at least I don't have to deal with IAbstractPojoBeanFactoryRepository. Yes, there are better languages out there, but they are niche and reserved for the really smart people. I've accepted I must settle for less.

        So 2019? Go jobs are all over the place literally everywhere. Senior doesn't mean jack shit anymore but "not a complete moron", weigh by salary instead.

      Accurate.
      Python is also garbage and people who use it don't know anything about how a proper language is designed.

    it forces you to keep things simple, which is good for team projects. it's popular among web devs and cli devs, and to a lesser extent devops infrastructure people (kubernetes & docker are both written in go iirc). solid career option. that being said, it's boring as shit.

    I don't hate the language, but I hate the compiler.
    It tries to connect to the internet, and google tried to add analytics and shit.
    Thank god for gcc go, it compiles smaller binaries but lets you keep the option of static linking if you want.

    don't learn OOP programming. Learn C, Lisp, FORTRAN, etc. All programming languages are the same, but the ones with namespaces (read objects) tend to encourage braindead abstraction based design.

    good standard library that contains everything you need. Lots of community libraries that further enhance and integrate very well with the standard library you can swap most things and it will just work. No bullshit compilation although I did have troubles with modules but nearly every language has some bullshit about package management only D seemed sane so far. Nice single binaries you can bundle html templates as well.
    Error handling sucks dick I really want something like rusts shit. Very strict with some bullshit. Poor docs in some places once you start digging no idea if that improved. I hate their doc site as well its garbage.

    Good enough for 90% of the web, but then it reaches the edge case of scalability in the cloud, where it gets utterly destroyed once some CFI figures how much you're paying for all that ram. As a webshitter it's a pretty solid job right now, especially in smaller companies.

    Go is pretty nice. Keeps easy things easy, complex things more complex, unlike Java etc that makes easy things difficult and complex things easy. Very similar to nodejs in a way.
    Ogen makes openapi nice, gqlgen makes graphql nice. Pgx is good postgres. Has the important packages. Go pls for vscode works very well.
    Main thing that feels bad is awful lambda syntax and very verbose error handling. I would go nodejs all day every day if not my ocd thinking of the ram and cpu usage.
