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.

I explained it up-teenh times as my Grandfather would say.

It is about readability and I want to know before compile whether I am writing the code correctly ... just an odd habit I have.

I think unless the code is crytal clear on its intent then it is not correct.

I work with a lot of developers, some are my skillset, some are better.


Some have re-skilled via courses and we obviously have juniors.

It is easier to tell them with a language when this word is put in front of a variable that is changes the accessibility of that variable ... same with the interfaces.

For example.

I can tell them "If the interface has these methods defined then anything implementing them must implement them".

It is crystal clear, there is no implied. The compiler will kick your ass straight away even if the IDE of choice doesn't tell you before hand.

I believe you are simply missing the point on purpose at this point in the discussion.
