First of all, forgive me to ask this. I am a noob to Golang and find it very promising to learn. I read that Golang is not as performant as C or C++ code. What’s the reason behind this? AFAIK Golang is very close to C or inherits many features. If this is the case, why is Golang gaining popularity? How about the future of Golang developers? What’s the primary domain of use – cloud?
