re: I read your arguments with interest until I reached your example about Elixir. For a beginner, it is just incomprehensible. Go : 1, Elixir : 0
 

COBOL is way more readable for a beginner (actually, for everyone) than Go.

COBOL 1 : 0 Go

The example was about proper typing, not about readability for beginners.

 

Go is a good compromise between readability and effectiveness.
It's good to hear some cons about Go, but obviously, it's still a great language.
