Go vs. Scala

One of Go’s features is that it doesn’t have an excess of features, and frankly, I think that feature is undervalued. There’s an interesting discussion on Quora about the differences between Golang and Scala. As a former academic with tendencies towards functional programming, I used to be very tempted by Scala.1 It offers all the functional goodness without the exoticism of Haskell, and came with reasonably good tools and frameworks.
