Learning a bit about... Go part 1


I've been spending my Saturdays doing tutorials on languages I'm curious about. This week it's Go (aka Golang)

What I knew about the language before I started

  • It's known as Go and Golang - I presume the latter is to make it clear that it's not the verb or the game
  • It's pretty new

What I did

I chose this because I've done another crash course, so I knew roughly what expect.

What I learnt

The basics - which is what I was expecting to learn. It's a bit like a cross between Python and JavaScript. Although I think what that's saying is that every language is similar to every other language in some way.

What I thought about the language

I liked it. The most exciting bit was at the end when we used it to start up a local server and add some HTML to it.

Next week I'll follow a tutorial to actually make something and see how I enjoy that.
