General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

I never tried Go, but I would give a try to D instead of Go.

I can't imagine why, unless you are doing embedded development.

Could you please elaborate on your comment?

D is a systems programming language (like C or C++) but with a very high level of abstraction.
