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.

I really like their approach on polymorphism and concurrency!

It looks, to me, like a mix of Objective-C and Java. I had wished for something like this would be supported by Java as I mostly prefer composition to sub-classing. Even James Gosling seems to agree:
