Go book update

October 18, 2010

programming

I’m preparing a 0.2 version of the Go book I’m writing. There are lots of small tweaks in the text and in the layout. I still need to extend the number exercises (and enhance the answers a bit), but it is slowly coming together.

There is a new chapter on how to write programs that communicate with the outside world (via files, sockets, etc.).

Some infrastructure work includes an automatic code checker — sadly written in Perl.

I’m aiming for a release at the end of this week.

Pre-build pdfs can be found here.
