Topic: Programming in GO


Google’s new open source programming language, called Go, took the application
development world by storm when the search giant released it Nov. 10
2009. The Go programming language is an open source project to make
programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and
efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs
that get the most out of multicore  and networked machines, while its
novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction.
Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage
collection and the power of run-time reflection. It’s a fast,
statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically
typed, interpreted language.

Duration: 30 mins.
