Finished Reading: The Go Programming Language

The Go Programming Language by Alan Donovan and Brian Kernighan

On January 21st, 2010 I wrote a blog post about the book I finished reading: The Ruby Programming Language.

Today, five years later I find a programming language similar to Ruby that I feel is going to make a huge impact in my professional life.

Today I finished reading The Go Programming Language by Alan Donovan and Brian Kernighan and just like Ruby, I like everything about Go, the fact that tools for profiling, debugging, testing and code formatting are bundled with the language, to me, is a huge bonus; not to mention the possible benefits of a clear C-like syntax and good performance.

I’m really really happy I found this programming language, I cannot wait to find a way to use it on the daily basis, as a matter of fact I have two personal projects, one complex called Sentinel and a simple one called book-tracker.

book-tracker will be my guinea pig, it will take some time to have something to show off, but I’ll make it possible. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day.
