Now, Go is interesting. Why is Go so good here? Okay. So the usage on this was only 8%, but the people that were saying that it’s going to be adopted or migrated too soon was 11%. It was actually one of the few languages that had a higher migration than it did have a current usage.
What does that mean? To me, that’s simple. That means growth. That means that more and more companies are going to start using Go and are migrating to Go. That’s a good one to learn for 2018, honestly. It’s not the easiest language to learn, but it’s a really good language. Like I said, I’ve taught a course on Go. I was an early adopter on Go. I really think that the technology is good and it’s a language that is growing. There’s a good opportunity here.
This is one of those languages where I think there’s not enough Go developers and that ecosystem can be expanded a lot, especially if you want to create frameworks and things like that. If you’re willing to invest some time and learn Go, and become an expert, you’re going to be in high demand. There’s not going to be as many jobs right now, but I think in 2018, you’ll see more of them and you’re going to see that there’s not enough people to fill those positions. If all of these companies are migrating to Go and you don’t have enough Go developers, this is a good place to be.
