Go is the most exciting new mainstream language to appear in at least 15 years and is the first such language that is aimed squarely at 21st century computers—and their programmers.
Go is designed to scale efficiently so that it can be used to build very big applications—and to compile even a large program in mere seconds on a single computer. The lightning-fast compilation speed is made possible to a small extent because the language is easy to parse, but mostly because of its dependency management.
