More about GO:

The Go programming language is an open source project to make programmers more productive.

Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language

Take Go on the Go!

I’m in the process of learning Go and this is such a great app to supplement the process.

Also great to tinker and play around. This app in my opinion is of premium value quality.

Thank you for making this freely accessible and helping out us new Gophers!

iPad Pro bugs

Just learning coding, and using the go playground app in a split screen with instruction videos- It’s meh, okay, and works when it works, but virtually ever time I make the go playground side wider, to see while I type, it blanks out and then deletes everything I just painstakingly typed out. Also, instead of the playground background, which I have as black, widening, so that I can see the entire lines, the skinny screen black section moves and most of the rest of the right of the screen is white and useless. If I close the app and open it up alone (full screen) it’s a large black screen, but it doesn’t seem to be able to modify size using iPadOs. Keep losing what I’m working on. Also can’t seem to copy, select, cut, paste. It’s painstakingly deleting one letter at a time, and retyping the WHOLE thing. There aren’t any faqs or instructions or help screens to get answers from. Just frustrating. It’s better than splitting the screen with the go website playground, but not by much.

Not complaining, just giving user feedback of bugginesses.

Fantastic app

Now that there's external keyboard support, this makes a great prototyping platform for Go. Nice interface and very well done!
