in reply to Thoughts on "Go"?
It makes me rather nervous to see a "systems programming language" of some years gestation that can say "exceptions remain an open issue" and yet doesn't immediately say 'what' their error recovery model is.
If I look at their tutorial it seems to be checking returned error flags and/or results for abnormal conditions. Maybe it's the PBP koolaid but I was convinced manually checking for every possible error condition / combination, and everywhere, was not best practice and not scalable.
My first impression is this is another interesting Google color thrown on the wall to
- see if it sticks
- see if the art gallery people say 'ooooo!'
So, is this just very early days, or just 'goo'?
