Support for Golang has been added in Amazon Web Services Lambda Instances

by Harikrishna Mekala

Go, the more popular programming language that was basically developed at Google. This publication doesn’t come as a surprise, given that AWS already declared that it would add Go support during it’s re: Invent convention last year. It’s only now, though, that developers can really write Go functions and manage them on Lambda.

With this move, Lambda now supports Go, JavaScript, Node.js, Java, C# and Python. Google’s Lambda rival Cloud functions, which is still waiting in beta, currently only supports Node.js, while Azure Functions supports C#, JavaScript, F# and Java with Beta support for Python, PHP, TypeScript, Batch, Bash, and Powershell.

While language help isn’t everything when it comes to serverless platforms, maintenance for more languages opens to a wider range of developers a platform like Lambda and in this immediate stage of the serverless game, that matters.

Go code on Lambda is completed in a standard go1.x runtime and developers can upload their code as a ZIP file within the AWS command line tool or in the Lambda console. In addition, AWS X-Ray, the company’s monitoring and debugging solution for de-centralized applications, now also supports Goroutines and functions for Lambda and AWS CodeStar can now help you set up your continuous distribution toolchain for Go functions.
