*Go* is the answer to the age-old question: what happens when you let the creators of C, Unix, Plan 9, Inferno, UTF-8, sam, etc run loose at the Googleplex? You get a compiled, statically typed, statically linked language that _feels_ like a dynamic scripting language. As the name implies, everything about Go is _fast_ – including development time. In this talk, I’ll introduce Go from a web development perspective, focusing on ways that Go can replace everything in your current stack.
