"Go Development Made Easy"

What do you like best?

I like that GoLand makes it really easy to jump into Go development.You don't have to worry about setting all the proper environment variables, getting a debugger etc. You download a single application and it manages all of those pieces for you.

What do you dislike?

Because this is is an all in one solution, bundled versions can lag a little behind publicly available releases. A new version of Go might be available, but you can't use it until GoLand is updated to include it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There's a free trial. If you're interested in Go or already writing code in it, Goland is definitely worth a look.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We write all of our web services in Go, and Goland is our primary IDE for Go development.

"GoLand is great for projects involving Go, Html, Css and JavaScript"

What do you like best?

I like best GoLand's code complete feature that generates the go code and other code you're looking for as you type it. I also like having a project directory and terminal connected to the same window for code writing. What also great is if you click a key go word the source code for it appears in a separate window.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how you can not drag files outside of the project directory elsewhere on the computer

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to create a dynamic web application for a business. GoLand has kept my code files and assets for every project organized and secure.

"A fantastic IDE for getting started with Go"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of getting set up with a Go environment and start coding. No more hassle installing plugins and getting the ideal starter environment setup.

What do you dislike?

It's probably not as advanced as other IDEs within the suite and it only provides marginally better features over your existing editor with a few plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is no better IDE that will give you everything you need out of the box to start writing Go immediately.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A quick and easy IDE to spin up for writing Go applications and services. It allows me to use the IDE when necessary as Go is not my primary language. It helps cut down on some of the bloat in my primary editor by avoiding installing additional plugins for linting, formatting, syntax high lighting etc.

"Good but can be improved"

What do you like best?

- Debugging inside IDE, which no other Go IDE provides

- Same experience as JetBrains, so don't need to learn its features again

- Easy and intuitive to use

What do you dislike?

- Hard setting extra options that I might want, like Atom easily shows add-ons for a feature but GoLand requires you to set them in the file (hard to find, hard to decide)

- Sometimes changes don't refresh automatically, so I sit scratching head why my latest log statement isn't printing!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ask developers to spend 1-2 days just learning how to debug and set env settings, etc. Will be easier in the long run and would end up in less frustration later on.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We provide container management platform based on Kubernetes, which is entirely written in Go. So all software developers use GoLang everyday. GoLand is better and robust than almost every other IDE for Go out there, so it helps us create, test and release features faster.

"Excellent doesn't come cheap"

What do you like best?

The debugger is really excellent. I also really appreciate the code navigation support. CMD-b for the win.

What do you dislike?

The price is a little rich considering the competition is free.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Pricey for an editor... but worth it. Like any other tool, you'll have to invest significant time in learning how to use it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I write code. This helps me do that better. As previously mentioned, the debugger is a great help. Deprecation notices are a very nice touch. The ability to navigate to code definitions is a huge help. Function signature hinting is also really helpful.

"GoLand is an incredible IDE from JetBrain"

What do you like best?

If you have use one of the other IDE from JetBrain, you will feel just like home.

The refactoring tool is, has always, a magic tool, we couldn't live without it.

What do you dislike?

Running golang test could be a bit challenging at first. A little bit of ajustement was needed on our side to be able to run them properly within the IDE.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a developper working with Go.

Goland is the way to go!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

GoLand provide us a solid IDE. So developing good software fast is what this software is helping use to achieve.

"Pretty Great"

What do you like best?

GoLand is a useful software for development, and I am able and would be pleased to recommend it to other companies. Among other apps, GoLand is much more helpful, and is less complicated than other options that are available.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that the company dislikes about GoLand is the user interface at the beginning.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

GoLand is a great software and definitely recommend.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lots of benefits have been presented with GoLand.

"Goland healthcare"

What do you like best?

GoLand is user friendly, easy to find what I want to localize.

What do you dislike?

It does not allow developer to write bad code. This though looks a cool feature, sometimes makes it difficult for developer. E.g. : It doesnt allow to import library if any of its function is not used or to declare variable if it is not used. In many cases, when developer wants to comment out action over variable or modify it, he/she cannot simply do it. He has to remove that variable from the file, remove the imported statement compulsorily and change the whole lot of code instead of commenting the action line.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gives a feel of scripting language unlike Java, so can be used for smaller programs. Low startup time helps in same

When tasks are not very sequential but can be easily divided in threads independently e.g. : writing a asynchornous API, etc

Go has better QPS than java. So can be be built for systems handling high volumes of requests.

"Really good GoLang IDE but needs improvement"

What do you like best?

It's as easy to use as Pycharm or IDEA. Syntax highlighting in really good. Includes an integrated terminal and debugger.

What do you dislike?

It's not on the same level as Pycharm or IntelliJ IDEA. I think it's because it's relatively new and still needs to polish some areas but still, it's the best overall

Recommendations to others considering the product:

So far the easiest to use go IDE I have found after Atom but slightly more complete.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coding in Go just makes sense when using Kubernetes or Docker, it's faster to integrate, and GoLand helps me to do that.

"A great tool, fairly new so a bit rough around the edges."

What do you like best?

In IDE debugging which currently no one else provides

No need to learn or configure anything else if you already use JetBrains

It was still in beta when I used it but even then it just worked and I saw myself switching to other windows less frequently and therefore got less distracted.

What do you dislike?

Not as feature rich as say Atom.

Some settings need to be hardcoded into a config file.

It was still in beta when i was using it so not many features had been rolled out but I am sure thats not the case anymore.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Same as any other JetBrains product. It just works and has a ton of features to make your life easier

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Server-side go development using goland. I was working on the backend of a web app and we wrote most of out backed in go.

The biggest benefit is in IDE debugging/compiling which saves a lot of headache and time when it really matters.

"The best GO IDE out there"

What do you like best?

Fantastic integration with APIs, the main reason to use GOLang at all is to use REST Architecture at coding, and the guys at Jetbrains did a fantastic job in making it easier for developers to access the resources without much effort.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a fan of go but I must admit that the IDE makes less painful to code in GOLang

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the best Go IDE on the market right now.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coding at go and peer-reviewing code in go

"Best user experience for my Go programming tasks"

What do you like best?

Goland is connected with JetBrains ecosystem so it's easy to switch among my preferred programming language. An easy integration with godep and govendor also simplifies the development process.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike in Goland for me. I love Goland as other JetBrains products and use it in my everyday tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't mind to pay about $15-20 for a good IDE - give a try to Goland.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Goland for writing small web parsers. The speed of development is among the benefits of this IDE. Code linting, debugging tools and git integrations also help me.

Auto Completion for Go Langauge, simple to run tests Makes your lifeless demanding with every one of the highlights accessible Popup and Code Generation and Highlighting all that you anticipate from IDE. real-time mistake checking before I go to arrange my code.

I found the setup for first use to be somewhat confounding. I needed to allude to a few StackOverflow pages for help as the documentation on gave wasn't the most valuable.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

utilize Goland for composing little web parsers. The speed of improvement is among the advantages of this IDE. Code linting, troubleshooting apparatuses and git incorporations additionally encourage me.

I use it for developing the application in Golang, it's the best IDE I've tried so far, really customizable for all your needs.

"Best go IDE."

What do you like best?

The only thing I dislike about it is the time it takes to launch the program. Other than that everything else is just perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a try and improve certainly sure you will switch to it as your primary tool.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I build backends with go. This tool has speed up the development process almost 40% I would say.

"Distributed Systems Coding"

What do you like best?

I like having the IDE provide function suggestions and does real time error checking before I go to compile my code.

I found the configuration for first use to be a bit confusing. I had to refer to several StackOverflow pages for assistance as the documentation on provided wasn't the most useful.

"Generally good IDE for go lang"

What do you like best?

Most of the short cuts are the same as other IntelliJ products. It works properly and has regular updates with more features. Command line is in editor. It is easy to search and find where objects are used and created.

What do you dislike?

Some short cuts, especially Find and Open are different between Gogland and InteliJIDEA. It's a bit annoying but can load own shortcuts. Would like darker themes or able to upload own themes easier. Would like new features to be shown off.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're already using IntelliJ, it will be easy. Pricing might be a lot.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IDE to use with go language. Auto complete is nice.
