Go (Golang) is a programming language developed by Google in 2009 to address common issues in large-scale system development, like slow compilation and the need for concurrent programming.
The language was designed for simplicity, efficiency, and ease of use with a syntax similar to C. Additionally, Go is compiled, making it faster than interpreted languages.
One of Go’s key features is its support for concurrency which allows you to run multiple tasks simultaneously through lightweight threads called Goroutines.
Go is also known for its strong support for networking and web development. Go’s standard library is home to packages for HTTP, TCP/IP, and other networking protocols, making it easy to build networked applications.
In this article, you will explore the benefits, limitations, and deployment options for Go apps. Additionally, you’ll create, dockerize, and deploy a Go application using Back4app’s containerization service for free.
