> It's like the opposite of Python and Ruby.

Exactly. Many people are running into issues with Ruby and Python that Go solves. Tons of Ruby and Python programmers are flocking to Go.

It's not better because it's the same, it's better because it's different.

No they aren't. If they were you would be seeing "tons" of job ads or blog posts. I've seen hardly any.


We must operate in disjoint social circles.


On Australia's largest job site: 331 Ruby, 338 Python and 0 Golang jobs.


Australia and/or job sites is not exactly where new languages first catch on.


I've noticed especially with newer tech is that recruiters will scour github for technologies, maybe examine the code a bit, and then write or call the developer directly. I've had that done to me and I have exactly 0 entries at "job sites".
