An Introduction to Go programming – A Free Online Course
You should learn a programming language every year, as recommended by The Pragmatic Programmer. By learning a new language, you’ll broaden your perspective of programming. In 2010 we brought to you Clojure and now we offer you a free introductory course on Go programming.
You will learn Go programming along with RubyLearning’s mentors Brad Coish, George Thompson, Michael Kohl, Satish Talim, Tarun Jangra, Victor Goff and Willian Molinari. In the last few days, we already have over 100 participants registered for this course and more are joining. Have you?
Go is an open source programming environment that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. Go has the feel of a dynamic language like Ruby or Python, but has the performance and safety of languages like C or Java. It is a completely open-source language, distributed with a BSD license, so it can be used by everybody even for commercial purposes without a fee, and it can even be changed by others.
