Golang is an open-source programming language based on C but enhanced with memory management, strict typing, garbage collection, and built to handle concurrency. It fixes problems notorious for C-programmers, where failure to release unused objects leads to memory leakage. It was adopted by the likes of Uber, Twitter, and Dropbox despite being a relatively young programming language. In 2020, Golang became the top language that professionals wanted to learn, according to a survey by HackerEarth. There are more than 1 million developers proficient in Golang and the number is expected to grow.
