    Looks like a good primer to Go - thanks!

    Smaller number of packages as compared to other ecosystems like Node.js and Ruby. However, it’s increasing.

    I’ve heard this as a criticism before, but as a person who did quite a bit of Ruby, I think this isn’t a downside but is instead an upside ;)

    Consider some of the most frequently downloaded Ruby gems. Lots of these are right in the Go stdlib:

    Is this just a case that Go has more batteries included than Ruby or Node.js?

      Yeah, exactly! I know what you mean, I came from both Nodejs and Ruby communities to Go. And, millions of fragmented packages bit me too…

      I put it there in disadvantages however I don’t think most of them as disadvantages, only that, people can may judge it that way, I’m not sure.
