I’m taking the plunge into learning a bit about Go :

Go is an expressive, concurrent, garbage-collected programming language.
The Go home page is the primary source of information about Go. It contains installation instructions, a tutorial, and more.

This repository holds the gc compilers and Go packages. Changes to the code are reviewed before being committed.

The gccgo front end for GCC is hosted as a branch on the GCC Subversion server. See the gccgo installation instructions.
