Yesterday I bumped into this latest programming language in my life called Go while I was going through the tutorial for building my First Web App using Google Apps.
Right now Google Apps support three programming languages Java, Python and Go.
So I thought of doing a search on Google and Found from Wiki that Ken Thompson, the co-creator of UNIX OS is co-designer for Go and it is developed by Google. It came as early as 2009.
According to Go’s Website
It’s a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.
