The Zeus programming editor for Windows and Ubuntu (under wine).

This fast and lean editor packed with features for programming in a whole bunch of languages now also has full support for working with Go.

Particularly impressive is the code complete or intellisense feature built-in for Go, which is superior to all code completion features I have seen so far in other ide's (also on Linux), e.g. when opening the parameter list it shows the types of parameters to enter.

Furthermore Zeus offers code folding, a very handy feature I also haven't yet seen in other editors, a Goto Definition feature (very nice for browsing the Go source), and a whole bunch of code snippets (templates).

Zeus has the same capabilities and speed Visual Studio offers, but now Go developers have it for their favorite language!

Book: The Way to Go

My book on the Go language has been published:

The Way to Go
A Thorough Introduction to the Go Programming Language

Published: 3/9/2012 by IUniverse
Format:Perfect Bound Softcover(B/W)

Its main purpose is to clearly describe all the concepts of Go through many examples and exercises, and as such is suited for students, junior developers and developers new to the language alike. The code is Go1 ready.
It is a print-on-demand book, so trees are not unnecessarily killed for it.

It is available through Barnes and Noble:
and Amazon:
but also as an e-book:

I maintain a website about the book where the code can be downloaded, and updates, articles and errata will be added:
