If you are interested in a different approach to writing your next micro-service, or are knee deep in the DevOps world with Kubernetes and Docker (both written using Go) you need to know go.

Micro-services, DevOps, command-line utilities — Go has been the catalyst in a quiet revolution happening right under our noses. Go, from Google, aims to be a language that is simple, with the aim of writing scalable and reliable software. Go brings a unique tilt to many aspects of language design, including enforcing a strict project structure, powerful tooling to support things like code-style enforcement, as well as “goroutines” to allow for concurrency.
