Join Todd McLeod for an in-depth discussion in this video Why choose Go?, part of Code Clinic: Go.
- [Voiceover] Since Go is a relatively new…programming language, I thought I'd take a moment…to talk about why you might want to choose Go…as a language in which to program.…For me, when I was looking at whether or not to use Go,…one of the strongest arguments which stood out to me…is that Go has amazing credentials.…Go was created at Google,…which to me is one of the greatest, if not the greatest,…software engineering firm to have ever existed.…It was also created by some luminaries in computer science.…So Google was hitting a wall…with all current modern programming languages.…
