The Go Programming Language

6:45 PM, Suspenders Restaurant

Go is …
… simple
package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
fmt.Printf("Hello, 世界n")
… fast
Go compilers produce fast code fast. Typical builds take a fraction of a 
second yet the resulting programs run nearly as quickly as comparable C 
or C++ code.
… safe
Go is type safe and memory safe. Go has pointers but no pointer 
arithmetic. For random access, use slices, which know their limits.
… concurrent
Go promotes writing systems and servers as sets of lightweight 
communicating processes, called goroutines, with strong support from the 
language. Run thousands of goroutines if you want—and say good-bye to 
stack overflows.
… fun
Go has fast builds, clean syntax, garbage collection, methods for any 
type, and run-time reflection. It feels like a dynamic language but has 
the speed and safety of a static language. It`s a joy to use.
… open source
