No, it's more like Go is (not enough to be) new Python or node.js.

Go has very little in common with either of those languages except a GC. Go is statically typed, natively compiled, a good 10-100X faster, and it has great concurrency/parallelism stories. It also lacks classes and exceptions.

I meant the possible target audience. While their initial goal was to attract C++ engineers, eventually they attracted (some) python or node.js devs.

Ah, I understand and agree. Thanks for clarifying!
