>>17976>What is the positive side of Go besides it being maybe easy to learn? I only see drawbacks.shorter compile times
, which is important for google because they have massive systems which take hours and sometimes days to compile.
AFAIK go also has memory management, which is partly why it doesn't "quite" perform as well as C/C++/Rust.
Golang is really not needed outside FAANG scale systems, just another trend of every company larping as google.
Google uses golang -> we use golang
Google does SRE style devops -> we do SRE
Google does leetcode interviews -> so do we
Basically a bunch of companies want to LARP as google or somehow think that if they do everything just like google they can cargo cult it's success.
