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.

A solution in search of a problem

It seemed that fast compilation times was a goal of the language. If it was a side effect, then great, but I think they were trying to address a problem that nobody really had.

I'm upset that Google abandoned the Unladen Swallow project to make Python faster and integrate LLVM. Had their new Go language targeted LLVM I'd be less upset.
