Go vs Octave: What are the differences?
What is Go? An open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
What is Octave? A programming language for scientific computing. It is software featuring a high-level programming language, primarily intended for numerical computations. Octave helps in solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments using a language that is mostly compatible with MATLAB.
Go and Octave belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.
Go and Octave are both open source tools. It seems that Go with 63.9K GitHub stars and 8.96K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Octave with 90 GitHub stars and 32 GitHub forks.
