Key differences between Golang and COBOL

SyntaxGolang has a C-like syntax with a focus on simplicity and readability.COBOL has a verbose and English-like syntax.
ParadigmGolang is a statically typed, compiled language that supports procedural, concurrent, and object-oriented programming paradigms.COBOL is a statically typed, compiled language that primarily supports procedural programming.
TypingGolang has static typing with type inference.COBOL has static typing with explicit type declarations.
PerformanceGolang is known for its high-performance and efficient execution.COBOL is optimized for business applications and may not have the same level of performance as Golang.
