Why is Go so popular? I haven’t understood the appeal of Go, and I seek to change my mind. (I mean the programming language, not the board game.)
@email@example.com I can only speak for myself in answering this. Go for me is the better Python. Go has the right balance of performance, ease of use and feature that I like in a language. Not too much (like C#, Java, etc) and not too little like C
@prologic I’m probably on my way to learn it too, for API and the like it looks really good, it’s a bit verbose in respect of python with typing but I got used to that kind of syntax with gdscript.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Well that’s one example (the typing system) where I find it has a nice balance too. You don’t have to declare every variable’s type, the compiler will infer this pretty much most of the time. The only time I define types are structs, interfaces and global variables or a locally scoped variable I intend to assign later.
@prologic yeah, that’s easy then. I’ll have to find a fun project to work with it and learn how to take advantage from.
@justamoment Sounds good 👌 Lemme know if I can help 🤗
@prologic sure, thank you!
@email@example.com Thanks for answering. I will try it then.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Nice! 👌
