Indepth Golang: Resources and Notes
I was hanging out at work for a little after-hours learning/coding this past Friday, when, in IRC, user Kharybs on #go-nuts asked, “Anyone know where I can find documentation on the structure of the Go source?”
After providing kharybs some general links, I started to think that it wouldn’t be a bad thing if I went and reread the Go Spec and Memory Model documents, since I’d read them as I was just learning the language. Plus, there were additional talks and documents I’d linked that looked great, but hadn’t yet reviewed.
So, today (Saturday), I’m starting to work through them; and will update this post with links to highlights and/or notes for the larger resources as I do.
