I’ve written a lot of Go. I’m in the “no try()” camp. Another way to do something to save LoC doesn’t hold weight with me. A single way to do something creates clarity in logic, even at the cost of more loc. Go is great because its unapologetically simple.

WebGL visualisations written using Go might turn out to be workable after all. :)
