When did you learn about Go?

Around the time it was launched, end of 2009. Generally interested in programming languages.

When did you write your first Go program?

Also around the time it was launched, end of 2009.

Have you worked professionally with Go?

A bit yes, though not as much as I would like.

What is the best thing with Go?

The simplicity of doing parallel programming, the nice built-in slices and maps, the lack of semicolons and the community around it. I'm not a super-fan of Go all the time, some packages drives me nuts, but in general I like it for a lot of things. And it's fun!


Professional developer since 1998, have been working most of the time on VM technologies (compilation, memory management, tools). Have mostly written things in C and Java but don't really like any of them, and want to move more to Go.
