I don't think that Go is really that popular. Sure, it's getting more popular, but when you compare it to Python on Google Trends then Go is below 10%

Go vs Python - Google Trends

Google trends is just one metric to compare the search volume and that does not necessarily show the actual popularity. I agree, every language has its place today but when it comes to Go, all I meant is, by relative terms, this language has more to give to the DevOps world. That is one reason why most of the popular DevOps tools like Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform, etc are written in Go.
