Being the Leader in the Search Engines. Google started launching their own products starting with their Chrome Browser and its Chrome OS. Now Google has come up with their Programming Language this time. Google has launched its Open Source Systems Programming Language called GO. However this is not Google first programming language. Google relesed Simple, which was meant for developing Android applications.
Google’s Go started as a ‘group 20% project’ in 2007, and full-time work began on it only last year. In group 20% project, Google employees were allowed to spend up to 20% of their time working on projects other than their normal ones. Pike (Principal Software Engineer at Google) and colleagues developed Go because they were thwarted with the advanced intricacy of software development..
“We developed Go because we had become a bit frustrated with how difficult software development has become in the last 10 years or so,” said Rob Pike (Rob Pike is a Principal Engineer at Google, Inc).
He also adds “It’s fast for development but it also is a true compiled language. We’re opening sourcing it now because we think it’s reached the point of being fun and useful and powerful.”
“It’s like using an interactive language,” Pike says Go’s goal is to serve as a systems language, in the way that C++ or C does today.
Google says it has designed GO for extensive scalability and multi-processor systems. And its a fast, fun and productive language.
