Today, we're excited to introduce Go as the newest officially supported language on Heroku. Over the last 2 years we’ve fallen in love with Go, an expressive, concise, clean, and efficient language with built-in concurrency, making it easy to write and maintain network services, microservices and high-traffic API endpoints.
Now when writing Go you can leverage Heroku’s great developer experience and platform to quickly build apps your users can depend on. This includes the familiar
git push heroku master, review apps, metrics within your dashboard, and much more. As you'd expect, Heroku doesn't introduce any changes to your Go application runtime or dependencies. Your code is entirely yours and works seamlessly with many of the open tools in Heroku’s large ecosystem. Add-ons such as Postgres and Redis allow you to select services and tools without being locked into proprietary APIs. In addition to everything Heroku provides above, official Go support includes:
- Fast support and testing for new versions of the language, key frameworks/libraries & tools
- Notifications for critical vulnerabilities affecting your application
- Support for issues as well as availability of premium support
