  • technical summary: Announcing a new Go codewalk, exploring first class functions.

Programmers new to Go are often surprised by its support for function types, functions as values, and closures. The First Class Functions in Go code walk demonstrates these features with a simulation of the dice game Pig. It is a pretty program that uses the language to great effect, and a fun read for Go beginners and veterans alike.
