why go?

I have been asked a few times why I like Go so much. If I had to choose only 1 thing, it would be the philosophy of simplicity that underpins the language, standard libraries, packages, and tooling. Whilst no language is perfect, I appreciate its trade-offs for the following benefits. It’s worth to note these are purely personal opinion and not necessarily specific or restricted to Go, simply things that are important to me that you get for free.
