The fact that the name ‘Google’ now stands for much more than just a search engine should be well known. It should come as no surprise to most that Google launched their own programming language.
The Go Programming Language is an open-source programming language sponsored by Google and created by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.
Go has gained popularity since it was first announced in 2009, and it’s now being used by many companies worldwide and for a variety of applications such as:''Dropbox, Google, SoundCloud, CloudFlare, Docker and Cloud Foundry.''
When it comes to syntax, Google’s Go language is the C language when it comes to the 21st century. Being an open-source programming language, it is very easy to get some help and simultaneously make things easy for the time being.
Although Golang is still relatively young compared to other programming languages, it’s already so mature and stable that it’s used by developers all over the world – even Google uses it. Golang is characterized by simplicity and multi-functionality, which the developers aimed for from the very beginning. One of the main reasons for the development of a new programming language was the dissatisfaction with established languages, which are either efficient in code compilation, fast code execution, or a simple programming process, but never combine all three advantages.
By combining important features from different language families, Golang sets a good example for other programming languages: the Google language combines the ease of programming, which distinguishes interpreted, dynamic language from the efficiency and security of a statically typed, compiled language. In addition, Go's structure aims to provide a short development process that allows you to create large executable files on a single computer in seconds.
A technology to create programs that users sense as immediate or current, providing solutions for e-commerce, chatting, online gaming and more.
A study of how computers can be linked to share data. Today it involves web technologies, wireless trends and social media development. Golang features goroutines and channels were designed to meet modern tech demand. Go attributes, such as speed of development and deployment, also work perfectly for this task.
Golang provides on-demand access to shared computer processing, allowing you to process your data on a privately owned cloud or a third-party server. It also worth noting that the well-known Google Cloud and Docker platform were developed using Golang.
A service-oriented architecture that structures an application, decomposes it to smaller services and makes it easier to understand, develop and test. Go-kit provides specialized support, such as infrastructure integration and system observability perfectly suited to writing microservices.
According to the recent studies, Golang has made a steep jump into the Top 15 programming languages list and is there to stay. This young language will definitely rock the area of cloud technologies and entrepreneurship programs in the near future.
Go is definitely a good choice when you are on a new project, or planning to improve the next one. Once you get used to the Golang development, you can make it mainstream, because its advantages are far superior when compared to the downside.
