No! I am not going to talk about python or rubyonrails, the language getting ahead start and an adoption like anything is Golang. A languagedeveloped by the three pioneers at google, namely Robert Griesemer (The brain behind Google’s V8 JavaScript machine and Sawzall a language also invented by google), Rob Pike (co-developer of the Unix environment and co-created the Limbo Programming Language), Ken Thompson and few other top notches with similar experiences.

Why was it developed?

In a search for better language to perform typical tasks at Google like

  • Slow Builds
  • Dependencies on Dependencies
  • Reusability of code
  • Readability and understanding issues
  • Duplication
  • Version changes
  • Cross-language building

Hence the birth of the language which was to be simple, clear, clean and readable.

Key Features:

  • Readability: Go is readable just like Python.
  • Documentation: Documentation made beginner friendly Godoc.
  • Minimality: Only one way to write the code not like python which has many variations for same piece of code.
  • Practicality: Increased productivity of the developer.
  • Thriving Community

The language is selected as the rising language according to hackerrank.

That’s it for today we will further introduce go language and setting it up in one of our upcoming blogs stay tuned. If you like the information do not hesitate to spread it. Any suggestion, questions and comments are welcomed below.
