“Google’s Go language has re-entered the top 10 of the Tiobe index of programming language popularity, after a nearly six-year absence,” reports InfoWorld:
Go ranks 10th in the March edition of the index, after placing 11th the previous month. The language last appeared in the top 10 in July 2017.
The re-emergence of Go in the March 2023 index is being attributed to its popularity with software engineers and its strength in combining the right features, namely built-in concurrency, garbage collection, static typing, and good performance.
