| ||Ask HN: When to switch startup backend from Python to Golang?|

|Self explanatory question, but you could replace Python with NodeJS or any script like fast paced language, and Golang with Java or any sturdy compiled statically typed language|
I don't want our startup to slow down much but also don't want our life to be hell (performance, code quality, jenga brick backend) later with our choices.
Did any of you start with Golang perhaps and felt you were as fast as perhaps Python would have made you?
Is there a standard canonical best practice around this?
