Go is so good for web servers. Performs extremely well "out of the box", easy to learn, and easy to deploy due to static linking.

Here's how I usually look at programming languages vs use cases in back end development:

- Go for back end API's with high performance requirements

- Typescript for IO bound API's that can easily be modified and understood by front end developers who use typescript for front end work

- Python for scripting and IO bound API's
