The Little Go Book

The Little Go Book

By Karl Seguin
Book Description

The Little Go Book is a free introduction to Google's Go programming language. It's aimed at developers who might not be quite comfortable with the idea of pointers and static typing. It's longer than the other Little books, but hopefully still captures that little feeling.

The source, in Markdown, is available on github.
