Go Language

The Go Language: Features and Performance Insights

Secure Go Language Applications

Go language is an open-source programming language used for general purposes. Go was developed by Google engineers to create dependable and efficient software. Most similarly modeled after C, Go is statically typed and explicit.

The language was designed by taking inspiration from Python's productivity and relative simplicity, with the ability of C. Some problems that Go addresses are slow build-time, uncontrolled dependencies, effort duplication, difficulty writing automatic tools, and cross-language development.

Go works using 'goroutines' or lightweight processes, which allow additional efficiencies. Go uses a collection of packages for efficient dependency management.

Some examples of organizations that use Go include Google, Cloudflare, Dropbox, MongoDB, Netflix, SoundCloud, Twitch, and Uber.
