Go

Go is an open-source project and language being developed by people at Google. It is an expressive language that aims for concise, clean code and efficient use of resources. It has concurrency mechanisms built in to take advantage of multiple core machines and networked machines. Go includes a unique type system designed for flexible and modular code, and it’s a compiled language that also has garbage collection. It is advertised as “a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.”

To use Go on Ubuntu, write your programs in your favorite text editor and install the golang compiler. Install the golang-docs package for technical documentation.
