Really enjoying learning . Been coding in Python for a year or so now and I do like it but it just doesn't vibe with me. No criticism of Python at all but just doesn't suit my style. Excited about Go though. 😁

Does it always statically link the go runtime? Seems a bit wasteful, but I've never got out of the habit of being tight with disc space.

@PermittedSoc @betandr That's one of the benefits, cross-compilable binaries easy to deploy as the don't have any dependencies to external libraries or runtimes.

Yep, I can see it being a benefit in *some* cases, but I don't think it would be for my projects / workflow
