Go is awesome! It looks like C, but don't be deceived - it is completely different! The Go Programming Language is a new programming language from Google. It is very different than many other modern programming languages, and is a great substitute for C or C++. In this course we will cover most of the Go programming language and look at some of the neat things we can do with Go. We'll progressively cover each important concept in the language and finally end by looking at concurrency (which is built into the language.) If you are looking for an extremely fast an efficient language that is an elegant replacement for traditional systems programming languages like C or C++, Go might be just what you are looking for. Go allows you many of the benefits of powerful low level languages, but is very easy to use and designed with today's programming environment in mind. By the end of this course you should be ready to start programming in Go!
