Our guest this week is Andrew Gerrand. Andrew works on the Go Programming Language at Google.
Andrew shares the state of Go in 2015, how Go compares to other concurrent languages, why people choose Go over other languages, the C to Go toolchain conversion, and what's coming in version 1.5 and 1.6 of Go.
18:32 - "The reasons why I choose Go (and I think why other people choose go) are a lot to do with programmer joy... the overriding sentiment amongst Go users is that Go just gets out of your way and lets you write code." - Andrew Gerrand
