Hi,
I can see this is a tutorial for beginners, just wondering how Go ranks for ease of learning and the level of adoption of the language? I haven't seen that many positions advertised using Go but that's maybe because of the industry I'm in (Banking and Finance).

Thanks

Since I have never written any Go, I would like to know how accurate CB is about this being a beginner's tutorial. Do you start by explaining what a computer program is, or do you assume your readers know that sort of thing already?

I meant beginners to Go...not beginners to life :-)
