Good resource. Two more (I think), from bit.ly's engineering team:

Great article! I am working on an executive overview that I need to present to my manager, can anybody point me to some other high-level discussions on this topic, I'm not a great writer (except when it comes to code :)) and I would like to see how some people describe it in a way that's easy for non-technical folks ... Thanks

We've also put together an article outlining the merits of GoLang. It covers the main benefits and points to some useful resources. One of our favourite videos is Rob Pike's Simplicity is Complicated which runs through some of the underlying philosophies behind GoLang.

See more on our post at Why Use GoLang.

URL has changed again for "How We Went from 30 Servers to 2 with Go"
https://blog.iron.io/how-we-went-from-30-servers-to-2-go/

Also, the link is broken for "Go as an alternative to Node.js for Very Fast Servers".
Thanks for the great list!
