Google’s Go : Python Meets C++!!!

Google Go LogoHave you heard about Go?? It an Open Source programming language developed by Google. Google says that Go is an experimental programming language and combines the development speed of working in a dynamic language like Python with the performance and safety of a compiled language like C or C++.

Here’s what Google’s post had to say :

Go attempts to combine the development speed of working in a dynamic language like Python with the performance and safety of a compiled language like C or C++. In our experiments with Go to date, typical builds feel instantaneous; even large binaries compile in just a few seconds. And the compiled code runs close to the speed of C. Go is designed to let you move fast.

We’re hoping Go turns out to be a great language for systems programming with support for multi-processing and a fresh and lightweight take on object-oriented design, with some cool features like true closures and reflection.
