Golang: why? Some reasons to choose it

Golang: why? Some reasons to choose it

As of late I had a meeting where one of the responsibles ask me: "In the event that you need to pick another or distinctive language, which one would be?" right then and there my answer was truly short and basic: Go. What's more, the following inquiry was "the reason?", clearly. 

Thus, I said Go in light of the fact that I've gone gaga for it. You may ponder, why? Indeed, here are the reasons: 

Concurrency, of course

Contingent upon the multifaceted nature of what we are creating, we have to deal with the simultaneousness of the procedures that are being executed and for that specific thing Golang offers this thing called goroutines. Goroutines are not strings all things considered yet increasingly like a light form string that are overseen during run time (they can grow up to 1GB!) and less expensive¹. 

Package importing control

These days, secluded writing computer programs is a reality, so when taking a shot at our ventures we can have loads of bundles or libs that encourages us understand circumstances, however as lovely as it sounds it can likewise be a twofold edged blade. Why? any of those bundles can get expostulated anytime and to tackle this easily overlooked detail about utilizing censured stuff, Golang acts the hero. It's exacting arrangement about bringing in implies that on the off chance that you import unused bundles, it will advise you (in an extravagant way) that this specific bundle its pointless (superfluous). 

Variable declaration control

Like imports, variable statements are confined also. So on the off chance that you are not going to utilize certain bit of memory, if it's not too much trouble simply discharge it, since this implies Golang won't keep running with respect to it unused factors must be expelled. 

Different kinds of variable assignation

Golang comprehends two kinds of variable meetings, the great "a = b" that we as a whole know: appoint the estimation of "b" to variable "a" yet an absolute necessity be pronounced previously, and "a := b" that implies announce variable "a" with same sort of "b" and allocate its worth. 

Exports control (private/public similarity)

Each factor, capacity, and strategy will be open to different bundles that imports it if begins with capitalized letter "PublicVar" and private (unavailable to different bundles) if begins with lowercase letter "privateVal" in this way, private and open held words are outlined with the principal letter that capacities or factors are composed. Less words right now of coding mean more opportunity for the engineer. 

Pointers means memory safety

Do you recollect C/C++ "pointers (*p)" If not, don't stress: a pointer is an article that stores the memory address of another worth situated in memory and, in this sense, we have the expression "dereferencing (&p)" which is the activity of acquiring the worth put away in that area. In abnormal state programming it is helpful/significant for control the memory utilization to counteract memory leaks². 

Goodbye “;” is a plus

We as a whole realize the exemplary semicolon troubleshooting troll and we more often than not giggle about this yet toward the end it very well may be a truly irritating actuality and time squandering so why not expel this standard? 

Picking an innovation relies upon numerous components or necessities of the undertaking/circumstance that we are confronting and furthermore on the inclinations of the individual taking the choice, in any case, we additionally need to assess things like effectiveness and every one of the advantages that the correct choice could get our regular coding.
