So, I have been a dev for a bit, around 8 years. Primarily focusing on PHP,, with a couple of years under my belt doing C#.

I had a look at golang recently and want to delve deeper in to it, as the little I looked at, was pretty fun.

Is golang worth picking up? Do you have any specific resources for me to checkout? & would it be impossible for me to make a career switch if i got that invested?

    If you have the time to become articulate in any language, do it.

    I'm seeing a upswing in demand for Go in engineering and IT Management fields.

    As they might say, "Go" for it.

    Depends on local factor. Any jobs for golang open for you?
    Go is pretty good, and forces you to use a specific style - but no support for generics (coming in 1.18) will make swithings from c# harder.

    @magicMirror To be honest I haven't looked too much in to jobs around go too much.

    I just really enjoyed the bit of Go I have done.

    I'm going to invest some time in to it & see how I feel about it in a few :)

    I'd take Go over Node.

    But my path led me astray into the abyss of bullshit that is node.

    How I wish I could roll back time a bit and change the stack of a single project that paved the way.
