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 think that ATS may be pragmatic, especially in kernel land or "mission critical" code, sort of like a new spin on . Go is probably not the best comparison; I was posting that as a followup on a comment about Rust, D, and C++. More apt would perhaps be as a functional alternative to Ada+SPARK, though my initial impression is that it would have many improvements on these in the way of proof facilities and type system flexibility. But, that's just my impression ... I'm certainly no expert.
