After a busy summer's delay, the holiday season has allowed me to regain some traction on my "Go for Java Programmers" series.  This latest article compares Go's basic data types to their Java counterparts.  I hope to have the next article (on struct and interface types) up within the next couple of weeks.

As always, corrections and critiques are appreciated!

Wow, this is pretty much every project kickoff meeting or grooming session I ever had at my previous company...

I don't really have a problem with Brendan Eich being named CEO of Mozilla, despite him making Prop-8 political donations several years ago that I disagree with.

However, I don't particularly have a problem with him being criticized over it forever, either.

"Rock Star" played out a few years ago, and "Ninja" is almost played out now.  What hipster brogrammer titles will come next?

Perhaps "Software Mass-Murderer"?  "Programming Cult Leader"?

I agree, that the example with TimeUnit is much more intuitive and readable than the shown "old pattern".

It just occured to me that I'm a strong critic of the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Indians, due to their names or logos... yet I'm a huge fan of the Apache Software Foundation.  Huh.

Apache doesn't have a name or logo that is offensive. Redskin is offensive as is the chief wahoo from Cleveland.
