Looks like Go's officially made it big time: someone's written malware with it.

I'm excited to announce the early access release of my book, Go in Action.

I'm offering a 37% discount to my Google+ followers. Use the
coupon code 12go37 to receive this discount. You can purchase the book through Manning's website:

Go in Action
by Evan Shaw
Published by Manning Publications Co.
ISBN: 9781617290787

The complete e-book is expected by the end of the year and the print
version is expected in spring 2013.

Go in Action is a full guided tour of the Go 1 programming language
and some of its commonly-used packages. It targets programmers who know at least one other language, but might be suitable for motivated novices. It covers the basics quickly so more time can be spent exploring features like interfaces and concurrency. Later chapters focus on network programming and web services, and the final chapters address advanced topics like reflection, unsafe, and cgo.

I want to stress that the book isn't finished -- even the parts that
have been released. By being a part of the early access release, you
can read chapters as they're written and influence the contents of the book through your feedback. I appreciate any comments I get and take them seriously.

Unfortunately, I'm not short enough to be a hobbit, not slim or athletic enough to be an elf, and I don't have a "character face," whatever that means. At least I hope I don't.

Oh, and I don't live in Wellington. :(

I was wearing my Go t-shirt while Skyping with my grandma. Her comment: "That really is a cute little gopher."
