The Go Programming Language by Brad Fitzpatrick


This talk is by Brad Fitzpatrick , Staff Software Engineer at Google. It is one of the series of tech talks hosted and sponsored by Airbnb .

Brad will give a tech talk on Go, a new general-purpose programming language developed at and in use by Google, with contributions from nearly 300 open source contributors.

Go gives you the fun and agility of scripting languages, the performance of traditionally-tedious statically typed languages, and built-in language concurrency mechanisms to let you write simple and straight-forward code whether it's small "scripts" or huge servers dealing with millions of action connections, without the pain of either event-based code or the pain of threads.
