Programming in Go

Go (also called golang) is an open source programming language initially designed at Google for concurrency, multicode hardware, and programmer convenience. Both a tutorial and a language reference, Programming in Go brings together all the knowledge you need to evaluate Go, think in Go, and write high-performance software with Go. Pioneering Go programmer Mark Summerfield presents multiple idiom comparisons showing exactly how Go improves upon older languages and explains everything from the absolute basics through Go's lock-free channel-based concurrency and its flexible and unusual duck-typing type-safe approach to object-orientation.

Check out the sample chapter "An Overview of Go in Five Examples".
