Why Go’s design is a disservice to intelligent programmers

Over the course of the past few months I’ve been using¬†Go to implement a proof of concept program in my spare time. This was done in part to learn Go and to also see if such a program would work. The program itself is very simplistic and not the focus of this article but my experience of using Go is worth writing a few words. Go is shaping up to be a popular language for doing serious large scale work and a language created by Google is not to be sniffed at. With all that said, I honestly think Go’s design is a disservice to intelligent programmers.
