Automatic telemetry of Go and its Ecosystem


(ch) #1

I am thinking of using Go for a project.

But to make the decision I have to know about the automatic telemetry the runtime, the compiler and other parts of the ecosystem with send to Googles servers.

Like for example VSCode sends extensive telemetry to Microsoft, Or how it is nearly impossible to do offline builds in Android Studio, which is also a form of telemetry.

So what kind of unavoidable telemetry is built into Go?

Do not compare a software product who can send various data to some entities with a software development instrument like a compiler. I think that your concern is about standard library you want to use in your design. Well, I guess the standard library don’t send anything unprogrammed.

Forgive me, but is OP saying Go is sending usage data to Google?
