After deciding to write the Logical Increments backend in Scala and getting frustrated with the lack of clear, up-to-date docs for sbt, I found myself playing around with Go for standing up a simple RESTful API.
Oh look, a JSON marshalling library.
Oh look, a MongoDB client library.
Oh look, a friendly Routing library.
Wire it all up, and bam - it took me less time to create a working example in Go than it took to set up my Scala project and its dependencies. Granted, I’m new to both worlds, but Go certainly left me with a better taste in my mouth.
This requires more investigation.
