Google Launches New Programming Language: Go

Google introduces a new programming language, known as Go, that is aimed at being fast, productive and fun for developers to use.Google has introduced a new programming language, known as Go, that is aimed at being fast, productive and fun for developers to use.Google officials described Go as an "experimental language" that attempts to combine the development speed of working in a dynamic language like Python with the performance and safety of a compiled language like C or C++.Moreover, in a blog post by the Google Go team, team members Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, Ken Thompson, Ian Taylor, Russ Cox, Jini Kim and Adam Langley said: "In our experiments with Go to date, typical builds feel instantaneous; even large binaries compile in just a few seconds. And the compiled code runs close to the speed of C. Go is designed to let you move fast."Meanwhile, an FAQ on the Go language on the language's Website addressed who should use the language. "We hope adventurous users will give it a try and see if they enjoy it," the FAQ said. "Not every programmer will, but we hope enough will find satisfaction in the approach it offers to justify further development."

It took a little work, but I got a simple tcp echo written (telnet to the port, type in something, it echoes the text back to you). Next up, a chat channel -- type in something, all the other users see it. That's going to take more coordination and thinking about channels than I can do at 3am. Tomorrow, perhaps...

I'm working my way through the tutorial/effective go docs. I have a couple of ideas for projects -- one work-related, but I'm trying to get a more complete grasp of the language before attempting them.

same here, going thru docs. etc. whenever I get some free time, but I don't have any ideas for any projects with it yet besides they don't recommend it for production use yet. Looks quite promising though..
