Re: I tried Java a long time ago, thank your deity for Go

The same is true of any modern development environment or framework. They're all big, fat, and have the kitchen sink thrown in for good measure.

But that is what is needed for real development work - the power to deal with the edge cases, not just the 70% CRUD of most applications.

Take a look at Javascript development, for example, with its baggage of some form of editor/debugger, Javascript itself, the npm tool chain, the browsers you're testing, web services for your Javascript to talk to...

Modern development is just flat out complex compared to the days of the green screens of my youth. :)
