re: To func, or not to func: that is the question. VIEW POST


I think of Go as more comparable to languages like C, C++, or Rust.

Python I’d compare with JavaScript, Ruby, Perl, Php.

Of course you can do some fairly high performance programming in Python, particularly if you’re using a library like numpy, which is C behind the scenes.

However I think of Python as a general purpose language whose focus is more on I/O bound use cases. And you can surely do that kind of programming in Go too, but my guess is that Python would be a better choice in that case.
