@audrey I wrote my first practical Go as a provider for Terraform.
Terraform Core is a bit complex for beginners, but the provider plugins are mostly approachable - assuming this isn’t your first language.
Go Modules make it a lot easier to start a project from scratch. I also find that some older projects hard to jump in and build locally, because of the way Go source management worked pre-modules. The tooling eco system got pretty fragmented.
@audrey The statically-compiled output lends itself well to tool-making if you just want to scratch your own itch for something.
A friend nearby made a little tool for tracking what he’s working on so he has something to past into slack for an update at the end of the day.
