Google Go: Learn A New Language


Programming languages are each adept at solving certain kinds of problems. As developers, we should be exposed to different varieties of language to learn their strengths, their weaknesses, and where they are best applied. Google Go is a relatively young programming language with a unique approach and C-like syntax.

In this session, you’ll learn the syntax and distinctive features of the Google Go (GoLang) programming language.  We’ll walk through code samples and identify the kinds of solutions where it might be best applied.
