Go is an open-source programming language developed at Google and other contributors. First published in 2009, it aims to simplify the process of software development, specially for complex architecture and processes. Go is a statically typed, compiled programming language. It is syntactically similar to C, but with memory safety, garbage collection, structural typing, and concurrency. Google created Go to solve software issues of scalability where resources are limited by hardware.
The main advantages of using Go are:
- Go is fast
- Go is easy to learn
- Go applications scale well
- There are comprehensive programming tools
- It has a growing developer’s community
In terms of performance Go is similar to C/C++, and it is much easier to maintain than Java. It doesn’t need a virtual machine to run so there’s no warming up execution time.
Accuratica’s specialized team of developers and experts produce fast, high-quality, reliable server-side applications using the Go programming language.
