Google Google has invented a new programming language designed to reduce the complexity of coding without compromising the performance of applications. Called Go, the language has been tested internally at Google but is still at an experimental stage, so the company is releasing it as open-source code in the hope that it will get help with its future development.

Another dead language

After reading the tutorial, I can say that it is already dead for me.

Compared with mainstream languages, and languages that are currently gaining momentum as well, Go doesn't have much to offer.

And several syntactic elements look real strange, as many people already noted on the forums.

I won't care about it.
