I recently decided to take some time and teach myself a new programming language. I mostly work with Python and occasionally, JavaScript for and in my profession. I am not a master of either, but out of curiosity, availability of some free time to myself, excitement brought about by challenges and of course, a nasty experience during an Amazon interview, I opted to pick and learn this new language.

Of course I could have picked other languages, be it human, like Xhosa or programming, like Java, C++ etc, but why I mainly opted for Golang is a story for another…
