Anyone tried GO yet? URL is golang dot org (sorry, I can’t post url’s yet)
Google’s new C++ replacement language. Very interesting. It’s main goals are to eliminate long compile times, take better advantage of multi-core processing in the compiler and core language libraries, and simplify syntax with a language that’s designed for multi-core operation from the ground up.
Demos show the core language libraries being compiled on a standard mac book in under 10 seconds. A lot of the omitted syntax also just seems to make sense and reduce potential hard to find typos.
