I've mainly worked on Unix/Unix-like systems (Solaris, Linux) using C/C++, and when Go first came out, I immediately recognized it could not only complement C as a serious systems programming language that is "close to the metal", but it also adds new, refreshing language features that fit the Unix way of doing things. Since then, it's become my main programming language for private projects, and I've been writing Go code as my day job since 2013.
To meet like-minded people and to learn more about Go.
