So about a year ago, my then (and now no longer) boss handed me a book saying you might be interested in this.
That's sat on my desk unopened for almost a year.
The Go Programming Language
I've still not opened the book, but I put together a small command line app that could be used to record what I'm doing, while I'm doing it.
I'll keep playing I quite like it (so far).
If you're interested the repo is here:
I'll update with more details later.
