The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Or is it too early to ask? :)

Well, I can't find any mention of input or output let alone "database", but... [ahem]... here's one language design decision I applaud: "Go doesn't provide assertions. ... Proper error handling means that servers continue operation after non-fatal errors instead of crashing."

I guess it's not readily apparent that a bounty was offered and then immediately granted... now Ben S has a whole sack of ... points!

Various forms of I/O are handled by the bufio, fmt, io and rpc packages, but I also couldn't find any mention of databases.

Presumably, they will be providing a way to connect up to a database since it looks like Go is geared towards server-side concurrent programming.

Our native protocol is proprietary, and I know that we haven't done a client library for Go, so I can safely say that there currently isn't one.

It's possible that someone somewhere has written up a TDS client library for Go, and that might work.
