At Lang.NEXT 2012, several conversations happened in the "social room", which was right next to the room where sessions took place. Our dear friend, Erik Meijer, led many interesting conversations, some of which we are fortunate enough to have caught on camera for C9.
Here, Erik interviews Go language designer Robert Griesemer. Go is a concurrent, garbage-collected systems programming language with fast compilation. See Robert's Lang.NEXT 2012 Go presentation.
Topics in this E2E conversation include:
Is Go native? What is native, exactly? Why Go?
Thank you Robert and Erik for the fascinating conversation.
