Playing with Go

I have been having some fun with Golang recently, and I wanted to share a quick getting started guide.

  1. Take the Go Tour - This tour is remarkably effective, it will take you through the entire language in less than a hour.
  2. Download and Install Go - It's a remarkably small install.
  3. Setup your Path - This is simply, but a significant paradigm shift from what I was used to a .NET developer. In short, you can have a single workspace for all of your projects, and this path variable is where that is located.
  4. Install Gogland as your IDE - The pre-release Jetbrains IDE is already the best one on the market. I don't know if it's pronounced "go gland" or "gog land", but either way it's free!

Enjoy,
Tom
