Ahh, now I get it. Some of Go is based on python syntax. I guess that is why they named arrays slices. Actually, it almost looks like somebody took Python, stripped out the OO part, added data typing, and said lets compile this. Which is really cool.

Of course I'm basing this on about 30 minutes spent reading Python docs and about the same time with Go docs. Despite 25 years of coding experience in everything from assembly to ruby, I never learned Python. One of the very few popular languages I have just never needed. Maybe it is time to learn.
