Go vs Scala Native: What are the differences?
Developers describe Go as "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. On the other hand, Scala Native is detailed as "Your favourite language gets closer to bare metal". Scala Native is a new ahead-of-time compiler and lightweight managed runtime designed specifically for Scala. Project is currently in pre-release stage.
Go and Scala Native can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
Go and Scala Native are both open source tools. It seems that Go with 60.4K GitHub stars and 8.36K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Scala Native with 3.62K GitHub stars and 248 GitHub forks.
