There have been huge amounts of exciting Go projects emerging in the last year, just to give a brief list of the ones I found very interesting:

A good place to get started could be Go by Example.

Are you learning Go, if so what is your opinion? Do you think that Go will play a huge part of our IT ecosystem in the following years?
