General Development "I feel like writing about the Go programming language (or 'Golang') today, so instead today's topic is computer stuff. For the record, the language I've programmed the most in has been Python, so that’s the perspective I'm analyzing it from." Some good and bad things about Go.

Go is a dream to cross compile with. eg I can write a program on x86 Windows, test it and then compile it for a Linux ARMv6, still on the Windows PC, and just copy the ELF over. No code modifications what-so-ever.


This is only possible if you restrict yourself to the base library and Go pure code.

This is nothing new, cross-compiling exists since the dawn of computing.
