Go (often referred to as golang) is a free and open source[12] programming language created at Google[13] in 2007 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson.[10] It is a compiled, statically typed language in the tradition of Algol and C, with garbage collection, limited structural typing,[3] memory safety features and CSP-style concurrent programming features added.[14]

The language was announced in November 2009; it is used in some of Google’s production systems,[15] as well as by other firms. Two major implementations exist: Google’s Go compiler, “gc”, is developed as open source software and targets various platforms including Linux, OS X, Windows, various BSD and Unix versions, and since 2015 also mobile devices, including smartphones.[16] A second compiler, gccgo, is a GCC frontend.[17][18] The “gc” toolchain is self-hosting since version 1.5.[19]
