You'll want to choose Go when you want:

- Fast execution (generally faster than Java/.NET and way faster than Ruby/Python)
- Fast compilation for larger projects (builds faster than C/C++)
- Automatic garbage collection (which C/C++ don't have)
- Easy concurrency support using goroutines and channels rather than threads

There's many other smaller reasons but those are the chief reasons people get started with Go.
