Error handling in Go is pretty straight forward. There are no exceptions, there are no try catch blocks, there is only ERROR.

Error is a type like any other primitive built into the language, like a int or a string. This makes error handling, while a tad verbose, very straight forward and easy to understand.

Check it out and let me know what ya'll think. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
