Although traditional programming languages such as C ++, Java, C #, and Python are still widely used, they were not created to cope with the demand volumes of today's internet giants. Concretely, this translates into a multitude of systems, APIs and frameworks to understand and master. GO, created in 2007 but announced publicly only two years later, was designed to respond to criticism from other languages. Specifically, it has greater computing power and its ease of use is also more suited to customer demands.
One of the advantages of GO is its ability to reduce the number of resources required to support applications. It was created so that they can benefit from the model of parallelism and concurrency integrated and more simplified than those offered by its predecessors. The objective is to perform several tasks at the same time and in an optimized manner, promoting better use of server resources.
Despite the fact that Golang or Go is still relatively young compared to other languages, it is so mature and stable at the same time, that developers from all over the world - even Google - have already succumbed to its possibilities. Its main virtues are simplicity and multi-functionality, which are the aspects that its developers have pursued from the beginning.
By combining the best of each language, Golang is ahead of the rest by being a good role model. The language developed by Google combines the ease of programming interpreted and dynamic languages and the efficiency and security of a statically typed compiled language. In addition, Go's structure is designed to shorten the development process so that it also allows large executable files to be created on a single computer in a short time. Some of the distinctive characteristics with which this level of quality can be achieved are the following:
- A light but expressive type system that allows you to classify and differentiate objects (variables, functions, etc.)
- Concurrency (simultaneous calculations), which allows faster execution of programs
- The mentioned garbage collector to rationally use memory and avoid space problems
- A strict dependency specification without complex declaration syntax
- Multiplatform, to use the applications developed on any system
Advantages And Application Of Golang
Thanks to its simplicity, the Google language offers programmers much more convenience than other languages. Once the basic theory is assumed, it is easy to take advantage of its ease of use and the many automated mechanisms that result in considerable time savings. With these tools, including the aforementioned autonomous code optimization with gofmt, Go provides the ideal answer to the increasingly demanding tasks of the software developer. To this is added the fact that the Golang code always has the same format, which greatly facilitates its readability and teamwork.
Another remarkable aspect of Golang programming is its good performance. The execution speed of Go applications scores well when compared to other compiler languages. Its compilation speed is broadly comparable to that of Java. But, while many Java applications are based on the Spring framework and this means that when they start up they take a certain time to respond to HTTP requests, Golang services take less time to complete.
Consequently, it is not surprising that until now, Golang has found applications mainly in companies and in the server environment, areas where stability and performance of services play a particularly important role. It is especially in container-based virtualization where there is special demand for this young programming language, which is also related to the fact that Docker, the most prominent representative of container platforms, is based on Go.

Differences With C
Golang is very similar to C language. However, it has a series of quite important differences with respect to this other programming language. The first, without a doubt, is that Go is object-oriented, while C is not an OOP language.
In addition, it also has other differences compared to its rival, such as:
The use of the semicolon at the end of each line is optional.
Go uses backwards statements to make the code easier to read and interpret.
Golang does not use pointer arithmetic, which makes it a more secure language.
++ and - is not an expression.
