10.2.1. Go Programming
A presentation delivered by Rob Pike and Russ Cox at Google I/O 2010. It illustrates how programming in Go differs from other languages through a set of examples demonstrating features particular to Go. These include concurrency, embedded types, methods on any type, and program construction using interfaces.
10.2.2. The Go Tech Talk
An hour-long talk delivered by Rob Pike at Google in October 2009. The language's first public introduction. (See the slides in PDF format.) The language has changed since it was made, but it's still a good introduction.
10.2.3. gocoding YouTube Channel
A YouTube channel that includes screencasts and other Go-related videos:
- Screencast: Writing Go Packages - writing, building, and distributing Go packages.
- Screencast: Testing Go Packages - writing unit tests and benchmarking Go packages.
10.2.4. The Expressiveness Of Go
A discussion of the qualities that make Go an expressive and comprehensible language. The talk was presented by Rob Pike at JAOO 2010. The recording of the event was lost due to a hardware error.
10.2.5. Another Go at Language Design
A tour, with some background, of the major features of Go, intended for an audience new to the language. The talk was presented at OSCON 2010. See the presentation slides.
This talk was also delivered at Sydney University in September 2010. A video of the lecture is available here.
10.2.6. Go Emerging Languages Conference Talk
Rob Pike's Emerging Languages Conference presentation delivered in July 2010. See the presentation slides. Abstract:
Go’s approach to concurrency differs from that of many languages, even those (such as Erlang) that make concurrency central, yet it has deep roots. The path from Hoare’s 1978 paper to Go provides insight into how and why Go works as it does.
10.2.7. The Go Promo Video
A short promotional video featuring Russ Cox demonstrating Go's fast compiler.
10.2.8. The Go Programming Language
This talk will introduce Go's unique feature set, and discuss some of the ways in which it is being used today.
