It feels very fast, comparable to C, yet is a lot safer than C and comes with very useful library and built in lightweight concurrency.
I myself don't use it very much, about the only thing I used it for was for modelling workload for stress testing a web service we create. I needed to maintain a lot of concurrent user sessions, understand tls, http and json, and I could not find a better tool to do the job.
