This week's book giveaways are in the Jython/Python and Object-Oriented programming forums. We're giving away four copies each of Machine Learning for Business: Using Amazon SageMaker and Jupyter and Object Design Style Guide and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
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.
