I switched to Golang.

I switched to Golang from PHP. Learning Golang. Building project with Golang.

I switched to Golang.
Go my friend

As you can see, I don't write that much about PHP anymore because I lost motivation. I used PHP and Symfony, in particular, for a long time.

With Go, I found it so refreshing and motivated me. I need to learn new things because otherwise, everything gets boring.

I've built first website using Nuxt.js and Golang as backend and wrote crawler/scraper in Go.
Why Go?

  1. Firstly, I want to mention that I learned Golang back in 2016 but never used it back then in a real project, and it was kinda immature and not so popular then. So I dropped it.
  2. Last year, I saw that Job market is getting bigger with Golang, and the language is much better in 2023/24, so I decided to give it a GO.
  3. Learning new Go is pretty straightforward and easy, especially for someone who knows multiple languages already.
  4. You don't really need complicated frameworks to build things. Go Standard Library is excellent.
  5. Deploying applications is much easier than PHP
  6. Statically typed
  7. Compiled high-level programmed language

I learned it pretty quickly and then jumped right into a building project. My main advice is to build something if you want to learn something. It can be anything: side project, SaaS, API, or parser.
You will learn so much.

As you can see, I don't write that much about PHP anymore because I lost motivation.

In my blog, I will write more about Golang and how I build SaaS and Side projects here. Stay tuned. And, of course, technical-related stuff.
