The popularity of the Go programming language has been rising rapidly in the last few years. It's being used in thousands of projects, and people are loving its lightweight approach to static typing, and the power that the built-in concurrency primitives provide.
This deck gives an overview of the core elements of Go that you'll need to know to get going. It covers the type system, explaining and giving examples of the use of each type; the control structures available; the concurrency primitives, and the power that goroutines and channels give; and code organisation, workspaces and tooling.
This talk was given as part of the regular lunchtime "Tech Talks" series at Venntro. A video of the talk is available at https://vimeo.com/140410716 (66 minutes).
