Go is a awesome cross-platform, functional language that compiles down to native code with zero run-time dependencies. If that wasn’t cool enough, it’s designed in a way to heavily encourage (and at times, require) good coding practices. In this session we’ll look at Go from the ground up and you’ll learn how to get started with the language as well as go into some details on the types of applications Go is really good for.
