Google Engineer says Java and C++ are to complex….

At his OSCON keynote in Portland this week Robert Pike, Google Distinguished Engineer, talked about why he thinks Java and C++ are getting to be to complex.  So what is Google’s response?  GO…A new language that is supposed to offer the speed and performance of C++ and Java and easy of development of Python or Ruby.  For more of the detail on the Language check out this InfoworldYou can see the keynote here and some commentary from Infoworld here.  I have programmed in C++ and also Java.  I have to agree.  I have recently been converted from Perl to Python and find them both really quick and easy to program in.  So if Go can do what they have set as a goal then we should end up with an awesome performance and short development times.
