If you read this blog for any amount of time you’ll know that I really like technology, specifically web development technologies. I’ve written about my experiences with Ruby on Rails, Batman, and a few curiosities along the way.
But my last post was something different, it was about Go. In a lot of ways it was the culmination of a journey, without trying to sound too weird, it was also the start of one.
Normally I don’t write about something until I feel like I have a decent grasp on it. So even though I started looking at Go over a year ago, I didn’t write anything about those experiences. At the beginning I was tempted to write about how Go was missing certain things…but that would’ve been premature. Now having used it for a bit longer, I understand it a lot better, though I still consider myself a novice and will likely be embarrassed about these posts in a few months (the perils of learning).
So now that I’ve taken a few more steps, I’m ready to write about getting started, so that other people coming from a similar background could skip the confusion and go straight to the good stuff….enjoying Go for the awesome language that it is today. So let’s get started!
