Here are some advantages of using it

  • Go compiles directly into machine code. The compilation is fast, cross-platform compatible and it creates only one executable file without dependencies.

  • It is safe, as it uses strong and static typing. Also, garbage would be collected automatically and you can make really reliable software using Go.

  • It supports some kinds of object-oriented programming (OOP) and interfaces.

  • You can attach functions to any type. That's real flexibility.

  • Also, Golang supports functional programming features like anonymous functions, closueres and first-class functions.

  • Common utilities like HTTP fetching, JSON parsing and encryption are included by default in Go in the form of standard libraries.

  • Go has great built-in command-line tools (ex. auto-formatting your code, test coverage reporting, refactoring tools).
