Go Environment Configuration

Go is a fast-compiled, garbage-collected, concurrent systems programming language. It has the following advantages:

  • Compiles a large project within a few seconds
  • Provides a software development model that is easy to reason about, avoiding most of the problems associated with
    C-style header files
  • Is a static language that does not have levels in its type system, so users do not need to spend much time dealing with┬árelations between types. It is more like a lightweight object-oriented language
  • Performs garbage collection. It provides basic support for concurrency and communication.
  • Designed for multi-core computers.

Go is a compiled language. It combines the development efficiency of interpreted or dynamic languages with the security of
static languages. It is going to be the language of choice for modern, multi-core computers with networking. For these
purposes, there are some problems that need to inherently be resolved at the level of the language of choice, such as a richly expressive lightweight type system, a native concurrency model, and strictly regulated garbage collection. For quite some time, no packages or tools have emerged that have aimed to solve all of these problems in a pragmatic fashion; thus was born the motivation for the Go language.

In this chapter, I will show you how to install and configure your own Go development environment.
