Go language

14 Apr 2010 1 mins Go, Multithreading/Parallelism/Asynchronous/Concurrency, Programming in general

I was looking at Go language presentation now.

The first stuff that took my attention was the C-like syntax. I really don’t like it. I want my language to talk to me. There’s, IMO, no reason in todays world to have identifiers and symbols from only couple of characters and using a lot of different characters from various places on keyboard.

Anyway what was interesting for me was the concept of channels, especially the mapping the to threads and attempt to effectively use system resources. The APM (Asynchronous Programming Model) and/or new Tasks both looks similar to channels – at least from the view what it’s offering, not how it’s exposed into language.

I don’t know about internals. But I’m sure, that the threading and parallelism attempts to get some reasonable programming model(s) are exponentially growing.
