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 was designed to displace Java in server-side web apps. The Go standard library includes a concurrent HTTP server, and Google App Engine provides a complete web framework in Go. REST layers are almost trivial and a few are already available on GitHub and Google Code.

I'd love Go bindings for Qt (imagine signals and slots mapped to channels in Go), but I'm told that it would be prohibitively difficult to implement ;)

https://github.com/visualfc/go-ui is a start.

You cannot easily replicate exact Qt C++ experience (like Python did), but you can create a nice wrapper anyway.
