First let me wish you, dear reader, the very best for 2018: May you have health, success, fun and love in abundance! For some years now, I've started learning/using a new computer language every year. 2018 will be no exception: This year I'll learn and use the Go language. Why Go? Because I like the (clean and simple) syntax Because the tooling/ecosystem is mature enough for me Because of the performance (even if it's not my primary concern) Because the goroutines / channels look like neat tools to tame concurrency Because I like the interface concept Because I subscribe to Eric S. Raymond opinion that Go could be the next C As usual I'll try to post about my discovery of the Go world. So stay tuned, and don't hesitate to comment and give advice.
