Go is an open source programming language, developed at Google. Optimized for systems programming, Go combines the ease of a dynamic language with the safety of a statically compiled language, along with support for networked and multicore programming.

This introductory tutorial will get you up to speed with Go’s tool chain and all the major aspects of the language
