One professor told me Golang is the Future, the head of STEM at the College had never heard of Go. What do you guys think?

    It's a great language, you should learn it. Learn other languages too, though.

    @SortOfTested yes, its a nice language, but i miss often the concept of inheritance.

    @stop go is designed to work just fine without it.
    It forces you to decouple Data from functionality, if there is functionality to reuse, use a different struct and write a conversion method if nescessary. Works for me.

    Now we need a IDE that can sort functions by parameter types.

    Probably wouldn't be too hard to make that a goland plugin

    @stop there’re embedded structs, it helps to achieve simple form of inheritance (mostly just to reuse methods)

    I sure hope not. Feels like a decade or two regression. Performance is pretty good though.

    @groxx Not a problem if it is the "progress" brought forward by Javascript.

    @groxx there’s a common misconception that a new language must have new features to make development easier. As the fact, golang actually took best features from languages of the last century (c, pascal, oberon, smalltalk...) and combined them in a single language, avoiding most of the issues, that original languages had. The intent, was to make development less clumsy and complex, which basically comes from bunch of different features, keywords, patterns that doesn’t work (e.g. oop, error handling) and multiple ways to do things...

    idk depends on weather or not your head of stem is one of those old "i've been in the industry for 30 years" kinda people who still peck type (and generally don't know much outside of the few things they know) kinda programmers
