Golang has been around for some time now and has caught my eye only recently.
Personally, I like the languages that are cross-platform, lightweight and fast to setup, like PHP and Nodejs. Golang is the same - but what really interests me is the fact that not only is it cross-platform, lightweight and fast to setup... but also native!
Native languages like C++ and C are very powerful but can sometimes be a headache to work with. I have been self-learning Golang and it brings a very nice syntax to the table, making it pleasurable to work with. The language can be used for web development, game development, and applications. I see this language as having huge potential and a strong future.
