Yes probably I am. I think this stems from my feeling that Go is a lost opportunity. There's room for a sane C++ replacement. OCaml hasn't made it yet, although it fits in that space [arguably]. Go tries to do that but ignores great languages that have gone before it.

I understand the confusion about the language though I don't think the goal was ever to replace C++. Go still has a managed runtime, so I can't imagine it would ever appeal to people who want to go purely native.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
