I have a history in embedded software with C and C++, but now work on web services at Iron.io using Go on the server side and every language possible on the client side.

I love programming languages and can find something to like just about anywhere. I wish I had more time to spend learning about compilers.

comment fmt.Sprintf passing an array of arguments
Yes, that's true and unfortunate. In that case you have to figure out whether it's worth the allocate-and-copy or find another solution.

comment Go: why would I make() or new()?
Yes, that's true, but the array size must be a compile time constant, whereas make allows you to specify a size at runtime.

comment go language license
I'm not claiming that gccgo's frontend is GPL because it links to libc, but because it links to lots of GCC, which does not (as far as I know) have an exclusion. There have been efforts to separate the frontend from GCC, but I believe they're incomplete and currently inactive.
