Go

August 7th, 2012

The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive. Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It’s a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.

Language

  • tinygo – Extensions for the Tiny runtime in the Go programming language. This is a patch that makes Go’s tiny runtime more capable. With this patch applied on top of your Go source tree, you can catch interrupts, and compile many more of the standard libraries. In the Go distribution, the Tiny runtime is just a toy to demo how to run Go on raw hardware. Adding more complications to it would obscure the minimum things it is trying to show. So instead, we’ll maintain this patch separately.

Tools – IDE

  • Goclipse is an Eclipse plugin that adds IDE functionality to the Eclipse platform for the Go programming language. The purpose of goclipse is to create an environment in which development of Go is easy for a beginner to intermediate user. Development is slow, but ongoing. If you would like to help out, please leave a comment stating so in the goclipse forum.
