Go is definitely going to be a big deal for years to come.
I also feel like the Go ecosystem touches on much of the most cutting edge techniques in distributed systems, so I feel like learning it gets you closer to some really interesting things (which pay a lot!)
Gophercon also looks like one of the great software conferences.

Could you give an example to cutting edge techniques? Like event sourcing and such?
