Hi Jay,

Does Go Lang run on a virtual machine like Java? If not, can you give a brief explanation on how it runs?

Thanks!

Nope! Go programs compile to native machine code. You can take a compiled executable and send it to anyone, and they'll be able to run it, without installing any runtimes or VMs or anything.

And what's nice is, you can take a single Go program and compile it into separate executables for Windows, Mac, and Linux, even if all you have is a Windows machine. (Same is true if you're developing on Mac or Linux.)
