Is Go intended as a tool for developing complex websites? What is its approach to HTTP?

Hi Rick,

Go was originally designed as a systems programming language but turned out to be far more general purpose. Go is used by some Google Web Apps (three languages are supported for that: Java, Python, and Go), and Go provides some pretty decent web functionality out of the box from its standard library. For example, the golang.org website is a Go application.

I'm not sure what you mean about its approach to HTTP, although I know that some very high traffic sites are using Go.

Could you be a little more specific about successful use of Go at these sites?

Hi Igor,

Well, the Google App Engine itself. There are also some mentioned in the various Go Blog entries Go Blog, and of course there are various videos on YouTube and on the Go website.
