Hey there Tuts friends, Derek Jensen here with you again, and I think it's time to Go. And by Go I don't mean leave. I mean Go the programming language, developed by Google. In today's landscape of software development we are constantly stretched to the limit to create robust, highly performant applications. And far too often we're trying to do this with languages and platforms that have been around for a while that just don't fit our needs. In those situations, it's important for us to weigh our options and make the right choice for the scenario, and this scenario definitely calls for Go.
