Hi all, thanks for the feedback. The reason I did not include more GCP definitions and overview is that I worry that type of content can be construed as "salesy." I'll try and do a better job of balancing basic working definitions vs being too salesy in the future.

Ɓukasz - terribly sorry that I was not clear enough in what I was saying. I wasn't saying that go was faster performing in general than PHP 5.5 or 7. That's not fair in the case of 5.5 (which is clearly outdated as you say) and not provable in the case of 7 (which doesn't run yet on App Engine and therefore cannot be tested.) What I was saying that a go binary launches faster on App Engine then PHP code. This is a pretty reasonable point, as PHP is an interpreted language with a corresponding runtime and a go binary is a complied stand alone application. With a non-exhaustive search I can't find performance metrics for PHP 7 spin up times, or anything that directly compares PHP vs golang performance. But more importantly, I was not trying to say "use Go over PHP." I thought I was pretty clear that I was saying "if you run into a performance bottleneck in PHP you might need to try another language, like C or, like I chose, Go." You give up the productivity of PHP but you get the performance of the other language. In any case, sorry to leave such a bad impression.
