The Go Programming Language

The Go Programming Language

Go Gopher

Go (often referred to as Golang) is a open source programming language created by Google in 2009 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson.

I have found Go to provide a easy to maintain code base with high performance. Also Go applications compile quickly and launch immediately.

Go in the Clouds

The Go team at Google have just released () a new open source project, Go Cloud, a library and tools for developing on the open cloud. This project is aimed to make Go the language of choice for developers building portable cloud applications. Which fits very well with a project we are working on right now, so I have started to see how this can help us out going forward.
