For network glue, Go is a wonderful and super useful language. Not just in how efficient it is, or how easy FFI calls are, but also in how easy it is to deploy.

I don't see Go replacing anything that isn't a lightweight server or really small data processing script, though. Anything Tensorflow or numpy of any notable complexity will probably remain Python afaict.

well I wouldn't call kubernetes less complex. and it's still written in go. I think stuff like that is where go shines.

The key question is how many lines of code would Kubernetes have if Go was an expressive language, but I don't have big hopes for a hypothetical Go 2.0.
