Compute@Edge: Go support has arrived!
Rust is fast and memory-efficient: with no runtime or garbage collector, it can power performance-critical services while also providing a rich and flexible-type system and ownership model that guarantees memory-safety.
But if you don't code in those languages, it can still be a barrier.
Go, supported by Google, offers a nice middle ground for developers who appreciate its simplicity while also being fast and scalable, with excellent native tooling. Commonly referred to as “the programming language of the cloud,” it has been used to build large-scale network services and tools such as Docker, Kubernetes, Istio, Terraform and many other cloud-related technologies.
Today, we’re happy to announce that Go is now available for Compute@Edge. Here's a simple example that returns some information from our Geolocation API - hit RUN to give it a try!
