As of my understanding Golang programmers are the highest paid programmers.
Sorry I no longer have the link to quote that!

BTW. Golang is from Google and if you check github project there always
plenty of Golang solutions available.

And the IMHO super cool thing of Golang is that if you cross-compile
on a Windows box it runs on Mac, Linux, Arm etc. and vice versa, very cool!
