I've been interested in Go's GC (Garbage Collection or Garbage Collector) for a while, which got me even to write a post about it. Go is a programming language developed by Google and supports garbage collection. Go also supports concurrency through <a href="https://tour.golang.org/concurrency/2" target="_blank">channels</a>.

Scala is a sophisticated, academic, functional, object-oriented, sandbox language that has a lot of features and runs on the JVM. 12 points posted by kenny https://www.quora.com/Scala-vs-Go-Could-people-help-compare-contrast-these-on-relative-merits-demerits/answer/Nick-Snyder-1 1737 Tue, 14 Feb 2017 15:19:00 +0000 whatlanggo - a natural language detection library for Go #language Natural language detection library for Go by abadojack 3 points posted by kenny https://github.com/abadojack/whatlanggo 1857 Fri, 03 Mar 2017 11:52:00 +0000
