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.

Um... I haven't given any personal preferences. I'm just defending Go because someone has to in order for a debate to occur.

On the note of optional interface implementation. Is that really very different from just adding a comment? Sure the compiler does stuff (like tell you that you need method X) but you'd run into issues anyways if you tried to use an object that didn't actually support the interface. And I'm pretty sure the error message would still make it clear what the problem is (object Y is not a Z.)
