Golang for PHP Devs
Much like PHP, Go is a programming language designed for the Internet.
Unlike PHP, Go is designed for the Internet in the second decade of the 21st century. Go assumes that code written in it will be concurrent and distributed, providing first class language features to support this type of architecture.
I'll go through an introduction to Go, what makes it unique among its peers, why and how it is different than PHP, and we'll walk through building a simple application that can accept external requests for data.
If you have always been meaning to check out Go, but haven't found the time this talk should provide you with the ammunition you need to finally hunker down and give it a try or to reject it outright before you get started.
No previous experience with Go is assumed, but knowing PHP, Python, C, or a similar language well will be necessary to follow along easily.
