Go is Google's open source programming language intended to make programmers more productive. It is designed to be expressive, concise and clean. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection but has a simple and extensible sytax so it combines the power and efficiency of compiled languages with the flexibility and ease of use of interpreted languages. It was built from the ground up to be a concurrent language and its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines.
Come and see Casey Borders as he introduces to the language and shows how Go simplified tasks that would be much harder is other languages.
