When I first looked at Go, the open source programming language developed at Google, I was unimpressed. Then I used it. Now I find Go to be a solid and useful tool in my toolchest of languages. In this talk I'll introduce Go, its syntax, how you might use it. I'll talk about its strengths and weaknesses and give you code examples demonstrating some of its finer points. I will also show you some examples of how we use Go within DNSimple, in production. So join me for an intro to the world of Go, and learn about how to use this pragmatic language to solve your programming challenges.
