Go may look like a language from the 80s but its support for concurrency makes it a language for the future. This talk will give a high level explanation of what concurrent programming is and why it is difficult to get right. We will discuss some common problems that occur in concurrent programming such as race conditions, lost wake ups and deadlocks. After some real world examples to show the differences between concurrency and parallelism, we will show how Go's model of concurrency addresses the fundamental problems in concurrency.
