Go is an open-source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.
Go is an amazing choice for a language as it was developed by some of the same individuals who created the C programming language, Unix, and UTF-8 - some of the most influential contributions to computer science. Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson created Go to be a modern language that easily uses multiple cores, easily implements concurrency, easily works in distributed environments, and easily allows the programmer to write programs - it has a very lean and user-friendly syntax.
Go was created by luminaries in computer science at one of the best, if not the very best, software engineering firm to have ever existed - Google.
The credentials of Go are unsurpassed.
But why did Google create a new language?
In my opinion, Go is the best programming language that you can be learning today.
Come learn about the greatest programming language ever created. You will leave with resources and code samples to start making all of your software and apps really go.
