GOLang Application Development

Go, which is also referred to as “Golang,” is a compiled systems-oriented programming language started by Google. Go can be considered the result of a rather conservative language evolution from languages such as C and C++. goLang is fast becoming the choice of language for various large organizations that rely heavily on server-side scripts that need to handle multiple concurrent computations.

Go borrows the best of C++ and Java to provide optimum performance on their scripts. The high performance is in large part due to the static compilation of the statically-typed Go code. A lot of optimizations are possible when a compiler can do all the code inspection work beforehand, as opposed to the dynamic JS compiler work done during runtime.


goLang has Similar performance characteristics as with C or C++, which is to say very good. It uses coroutines called goroutines. A goroutine is a lightweight thread managed by the Go runtime. Communication between goroutines is done very elegantly using channe


Go was designed with scalability and concurrency in mind. Programming language benchmarking tools consistently peg Go above Node.JS in performance in performing singular or multiple concurrent tasks.


Although goLang is growing in popularity. It also has a growing support of developer community with various frameworks and code snippets appearing across forums. However, the base is still relatively smaller than the popular languages like PHP, Python, Node.JS
