It adheres to strict rules and is recommended for this reason. With my expertise in C Language (purely C and not C/C++) and Linux too, I see this as its biggest advantage, and I just love this characteristic of Golang.
Moreover, the strict typing (syntax) is an important attribute of a language. It that helps in capturing the run-time errors very early and that too, during 1st pass of compilation.
It’s perfect OS-agnostic natured and code written in Linux, with appropriate language constructs to make it workable as-is and can work on any other OS, as-is.
The libraries are statically bound with the binary code. It makes performance faster. It may be argued that server applications may crash or fail due to failing-dependencies. This is equally true of any other programming language for that matter. Even with
One of the best things Go offers is the ‘concurrency’. Channels and Go-routines make the language super performers when one considers heavy load to heavy processing engineering requirements. I have done completed benchmarking by running 600,000 (6 lakh) concurrent go-routines.
Web frameworks, caching engines, web-socket frameworks, built-in support for creating and launching web-server, strong http
The cons that I see with the language are:
