Peter Bourgon has some experience with go, and he shares this on his website. Go is a language developed at Google 2007 and released to the public in 2009. In first place, this is fairly unrelated, but we’re currently evaluating go as a language for an IoT project, which makes it fit the topic of this blog.
Even though go does a great job providing a newbie with an environment to get started, there are experiences you can avoid making, listening to somebody that did it before.
