Introduction to Go!
Go is an open source programming language developed by Google. Go makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.
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.
