It's definitely a language I plan on continuing to use. I have used python
quite regularly, but my history is mainly in C. Go is compiled, so my app
runs extremely quickly, but the compile times are miniscule, so iterative
development was easy. In fact I didn't even think of it as compiling
because you can simply do: 'go run main.go' and it will compile and run
your program.

The static typing wasn't new to me, but I have been a fan of dynamic typing
in python. There are just some places where dynamic typing is awesome and
Go's duck typing isn't quite the same.

Go really touts concurrency which was appealing, but it went unused in my
application since I'm just using it to spit out static HTML. I used app
engine to deploy it, which took all of one yaml file and one command line.
