It's been a few years I think since I last tinkered with Go. For some reason though, I've been reading around the documentation again and getting re-interested.

As usual, it's been a process of tinkering and getting used to the tools. Coming back to a compiled language after a long time away definitely takes some getting used to. As does the lack of a REPL environment.

Still, I soldier on, slowly wrapping my head around the various bits and pieces. And even created at least one non-trivial function.

The real challenge will come in the coming days as I start to try and track down libraries to do what I want, including interacting with external APIs.

Oh, and creating a word search generator will probably be in the future too.
