I started learning Golang recently and after completing a project I wanted to share some of the first impressions of transitioning from Javascript/Node.js to Go.

  1. Types. Types are built-in in Go. This is way cooler than Typescript because there’s no extra setup effort, all Go libraries are typed so absolutely all of the ecosystem has types. This also means that there’s no need for tools like Webpack and build step is so much simpler!
  2. Go modules are the equivalent to NPM packages. However, Go’s package manager is very basic, for example, you can’t execute scripts from it. In my project I had to use  make to launch scripts.
  3. There’re no truthy or false values in Go (similarly to Java). The following code will not compile:
test := 5
if test {
    // ... do something
}
