Go for Beginners - Introduction

This series is aimed at beginners who are new to GoLang which is termed as a promising language according to JetBrains. We will look at some aspects which make the language nice and simple. So let's start off!

Let's consider the basics. According to the official website, Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. The language comprises of a simple syntax and it's less verbose compared to Java. It is easy to read and understand but yet powerful. Did you know? Docker is written in Go. That sounds cool right? Which makes learning Go worth it in my own opinion. Also, it supports dynamic type system as well as type safety which results to fewer errors during compile time.

This is an introduction to my series on Go, stay tuned and if you have any questions, feel free to drop the questions. Let's all learn together!
