Why choose Go
Easy to learn
“At the time, no single team member knew Go, but within a month, everyone was writing in Go and we were building out the endpoints. It was the flexibility, how easy it was to use, and the really cool concept behind Go (how Go handles native concurrency, garbage collection, and of course safety+speed.) that helped engage us during the build. Also, who can beat that cute mascot!”
"A small language that compiles fast makes for a happy developer. The Go language is small, compiles really fast, and as a result it lets your mind focus on the actual problem and less on the tool you are using to solve it. Code, test, debug cycles are so quick that you forget you are not working with an interpreted language. Looking at our code, you see less boilerplate and more business logic."
“Go has excellent characteristics for scalability and services written using it typically have very small memory footprints. Because code is compiled into a single static binary, services can also be containerised with ease, making it much simpler to build and deploy. These attributes make Go an ideal choice for companies building microservices, as you can easily deploy into a highly available and scalable environment such as Kubernetes.”
Designed for today's needs
Cloud & Network Services
With a strong ecosystem of tools and APIs on major cloud providers, it is easier than ever to build services with Go.
With popular open source packages and a robust standard library, use Go to create fast and elegant CLIs.
With enhanced memory performance and support for several IDEs, Go powers fast and scalable web applications.
DevOps & Site Reliability
With fast build times, lean syntax, an automatic formatter and doc generator, Go is built to support both DevOps and SRE.
“I started writing in Go when I was just out of college and couldn’t believe how quickly I picked it up, especially compared to other languages. I had spent months learning about how to build APIs in other languages (and mostly failing), but after a week of writing Go, I had completed my first API.”

Wir sind eine kleine Gruppe die sich gerne intensiver mit Go beschäftigen und mit diesem Meetup einen Anlaufpunkt in Darmstadt für Gleichgesinnte schaffen möchte.
Unser Ziel ist es eine Lerngruppe zu schaffen, in der Probleme und Eigenschaften von Go gemeinsam erarbeitet werden. Dazu gehört, dass man sich in angenehmer Atmosphäre über Best Practices austauscht, sein Wissen gemeinsam vertieft und gemeinsam neues ausprobiert.
In der Regel besteht ein Meetup aus einem oder mehreren kurzen (max. 30 min) Vorträgen und zugehöriger Diskussionsrunde. Mitglieder des Meetups sind willkommen selber Themen oder Codeschnipsel mitzubringen über die dann in der Gruppe diskutieren werden kann.
