GeneralGo or Golang: the official answer Pin

I just saw this newly released book, Hands-On Software Engineering with Golang: Move beyond basic programming to design and build reliable software with clean code: [^]

Are Go and Golang the same thing?

I looked it up on wikipedia:

Quote:
Go (incorrectly known as Golang,[14]) is a statically typed, compiled programming language designed at Google[15] by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson.[12] Go is syntactically similar to C, but with memory safety, garbage collection, structural typing,[6] and CSP-style concurrency.[16]


So I checked out the reference from the official Go site and look:
official site says:
Is the language called Go or Golang?

The language is called Go. The "golang" moniker arose because the web site is golang.org, not go.org, which was not available to us. Many use the golang name, though, and it is handy as a label. For instance, the Twitter tag for the language is "#golang". The language's name is just plain Go, regardless.

I'm glad we straightened this little issue up. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
