Companies Using Golang


Golang is a modern language known for its scalability, concurrency, and superior error check. Though a fairly new language its creators Rob Pike, Ken Thompson, and Robert Greisemer created it with the purpose of overcoming some of the shortcomings of existing languages such as C and Java.

Golang requires lesser lines of code as opposed to most other computing languages. Due to this simple syntax feature, Golang applications can be developed and deployed in a much shorter time. This makes the Go-To market time of Golang applications much shorter.
