Go 1.5 Description:
Go is an open source, cross-platform, expressive, freely distributed, garbage-collected, and concurrent programming language developed by a team of engineers at Google. With Go, any developer will be able to build stable, reliable, and efficient applications. Several interactive examples are available on the project's homepage. The code produced by the Go programming language can be easily debugged using the GDB (The GNU Project Debugger) open source software. To get started with Go on your GNU/Linux operating system, simply download the package that corresponds to your computer’s architecture, save the archive on your Home directory, and unpack it. Open a Terminal app, go to the location of the ‘bin’ folder and run the ‘./go --help’ command to view available command-line options and the usage message. Extended documentation on how to get started with the Go programming language is also provided on the project's main website.
