Learning go and stuff

November 17, 2018

I've been looking at learning Go for a few days now.

It feels similar to the time I've spent learning C++, but the syntax feels more python-like in a way.

I've started finding it easier to pick up new languages. Learning the syntax isn't an issue as long as I have examples to follow, and most of the core concepts are the same between languages.

The hard part of learning a new programming language, or really just programming in general is finding out what you want to code. I always want to code stuff but never feel like I have great ideas. I remembered project euler and decided that would be a fun thing to work on. So, I've been working on that some.

I already have the first 15 problems solved, the code is hosted here if you want to see it.

Go has been fun to learn because linting and a package manager are built into the command line. It also has code testing and benchmarks built in which feels nice having a "standard" library for.

But yeah, I felt like I needed to give javascript a break for a little bit. Maybe I'll do some more Java stuff soon or write something with python cause I never really use that.

Anyways that's it for now, I'll post again later.
