Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.

Go, also called golang, is an open source programming language initially developed at Google. It is statically-typed language, has syntax loosely derived from C, but learning however from C's mistakes. Concurrent communication is handled by Hoare-style message passing. Go has automatic memory management, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library.
