Go Language Packaged by IOanyT Innovations - Amazon Linux 2


Because Go language is an effort to combine the ease of programming of an interpreted, dynamically typed language with the efficiency and safety of a statically typed, compiled language. It also aims to be modern, with support for networked and multicore computing.

What excludes in Go which is present in other languages?

  • Go attempts to reduce the amount of typing in both senses of the word. Throughout its design, developers tried to reduce clutter and complexity.

  • There are no forward declarations and no header files; everything is declared exactly once.

  • Stuttering is reduced by simple type derivation using the:= declare-and-initialize construct.

  • There is no type hierarchy: types just are, they don’t have to announce their relationships.
