Soo, what would be a real world application of go? Havent read alot about it and am curious 😊
@Heichichi It can be used for regular Web services (people like the http and concurrency features) or simple cmd line scripts. Some are using it where they otherwise would use Python. One advantage is that Go creates standalone executables that can run without installing anything (unlike Python where you need the interpreter)
Some notable examples in the wild: Uber, Soundcloud, Docker, mongodb admin tools, twitch chat (migrated from Python) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/...#Projects_using_Go
