Go is a general-purpose programming language developed at Google. Go's design is influenced by the C and Pascal lineage, but instead of providing a conglomerate of features, Go takes a fresh look at the essential mechanisms required for modern programming tasks. As a result, Go has evolved to a compact language of surprising power. In this presentation we give a brief introduction to Go, slightly slanted towards programmers with a C/C++ background, and then talk about particularly interesting aspects of Go.
Meetings are open to the public and are free of charge.
