Why Go was created

Why Go was created

The goal was not to create a new programming language, but to provide a better way to write software. Specifically, the Go team wanted to address the complexities that arise when building modern server software, such as:

  • controlling dependencies
  • programming with large teams with changing personnel
  • ease of maintainability
  • effective use of multicore CPUs and networking
  • efficient testing

What Go got right

What Go got right

  • Portability. It allowed programmers to work on whatever platform they liked, and compile for whatever platform was required.
  • Gofmt. It showed that autoformatting could be done well and it could save valuable time by not arguing over spaces and newlines.
  • Strong standard library. It kept the community working with the same toolkit and prevented variant libraries from arising.
  • Concurrency. It helped popularize concurrency as a way to structure server software by making concurrency a first-class component of the language.
  • Fast builds 😁

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
