GO programming


The GO programming language is among the most prolific open source & rare languages designed to take advantage of current age multi-core, distributed/cloud computing & network centric world. It is cocreated by the same distinguished people who created C programming language & Unix which are among the greatest contributions to computer science, keeping in mind next generation requirements.
GO programs combine the flexibility of dynamically typed language with the safety & efficiency of statically typed and compiled language. Working with GO is fast & it produces executables which can run on all key platforms including Windows, Linux/Unix (many flavours), Mac OS X.. GO has “batteries included” – providing a whole set of useful libraries & tools one may need. Learning GO is definitely among the best investments one can make.
This hands-on program from Cralina is designed to give a through introduction to working with GO.
