About this book
Go is suitable for programmers with a wide range of skill levels—a necessity for any large project. Being a relatively small language, with minimal syntax and few conceptual hurdles, Go could be the next great language for beginners.
Unfortunately, many resources for learning Go presume a working knowledge of the C programming language. Get Programming with Go exists to fill the gap for scripters, hobbyists, and newcomers looking for a direct path to Go. To make it easier to get started, every code listing and exercise in this book can run inside the Go Playground (play.golang.org), so there’s nothing to install!
