I've mainly worked on Unix/Unix-like systems (Solaris, Linux) using C/C++, and when Go first came out, I immediately recognized it could not only complement C as a serious systems programming language that is "close to the metal", but it also adds new, refreshing language features that fit the Unix way of doing things. Since then, I used it now and then, playing with various language features, and I hope to use it as primary implementation language in future big projects.
To meet like-minded people and to learn more about Go.
I'm Andreas Krennmair, and I do Unix system programming for a life. Besides that, I'm engaged in various open source projects.
