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.

Yay! ad hominen attacks, because they make you sound like you know what you're doing!

I've read the book. It doesn't say anything about "implements" being a required feature for language readability.

Your issue is this: You're unwilling to learn. You're unwilling to adapt. Any benefit that could be gained is not worth changing your thought patterns for. If it's different then it's immediately not readable.

In other words, you're xenophobic. (yay for more ad hominen, but I'm done trying to help you.)

No you are unwilling to accept that I value readability.

I have pointed out multiple time where you have could have discussed this on a case by case comparison but you declined.

I declined you explanations based on simple keywords that explain things very bluntly and clearly. Yet you never addressed these concerns directly.

I don't mind if you say this is personal preference or what the community does. But it was "this is this way and you have to grep through methods like a numpty to see if something implements and interface".

I then get bored of this and I am direct enough to tell you exactly what I think and that it "ad hominem"

Whatever you like to believe...

lucas_maximus, I guess it is time to move on.

I see this type of discussions every day on gonuts (Go mailing list).

Then they get surprised that only script kiddies use Go in real systems.
