Like all programming languages, GoLang can be great in some situations - not so great in others. We weigh GO against other frameworks, focusing on real-world examples to highlight benefits and common challenges. Plus, we explore how to architect and design efficient GO applications from the start, so you can limit your long-term technical debt.

The goal for this presentation is to cover the following:
- When you should and should not use GO
- Pros and cons of the language compared to others
- Efficient architecture and design, focusing on reuse and service patterns
