Go on NetBSD

Go is a new systems programming language with a focus on concurrency and expressiveness. The Go programming language recently gained support for running on NetBSD on the i386 (386) and x86_64 (amd64) architectures. This support will be part of the upcoming Go 1.1 release. (FreeBSD had already been supported in the Go 1 release).

This talk gives an introduction to Go and presents some of its benefits for systems and network server programming. It will then go further into detail regarding its implementation on NetBSD from the programmer's and from the admin's point of view.
