Golang thoughts

  • Who decided null should be nil now? Other forced styling like egyptian braces are fine.
  • Really long functions seem to be the norm.
  • Does not having exceptions play a role cause you need to check return so factoring out 4-5 lines is no longer worth it.
  • No semicolons is good I guess?
  • Lordy do I miss Linq style functional stuff. Generics maybe coming in the future (though maybe not)
  • returning strings as errors is actually okay??? returing nil for success seems strange
  • Fuck you inheritance. I guess that’s probably actually good.
  • Ternary or null coalescing operators? Nah
