Go.Dev Portal Now Online

A new portal for Go developers has been launched by the Go Developers Network. Go.dev is described as providing learning resources to get started with the language, featured use cases, and case studies of companies using Go.

Go is an open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community over the last 10 years, see A Decade of Go - Google's Systems Language. The main intended use is as a systems programming language, and it has been used in high profile commercial successes such as Docker.

As we reported when it was launched, the Go Developer Network was formed earlier in the year by Go community leaders at GoBridge and Google. GDN is a collection of Go user groups working together to provide developer communities with the knowledge and experience to build the next generation of software in Go.


The new site has been designed to be a companion site to golang.org, which is still the home for the open source Go project and the Go distribution. Go.dev will be used to provide supporting resources.

The new site has a section showing companies that are currently using Go, along with an events section, and an interesting link to the Go developers groups Meetups page where you can find Go groups and developers near you. There are apparently 162 groups with 96,385 members.

Go Dev also has an 'Explore' option that takes you to a central source of information about Go packages and modules, including details of the current versions of packages and items in the standard library.

The team behind Go Dev say they will be adding more to this basic set of features as the site develops.
