With this posts I want to highlight few things when staring with GO for new people which sometimes doesn’t seem so straight forward after reading https://golang.org/doc/install. #1 Install GO’s version 1.6+ there is no point to use any previous versions as with 1.6 version GO added vendor support (experimental in 1.5). What does it mean ? That dependencies are tight to a project not a global GO’s dependency catalog. If you come from PHP world you can compare it to global command for composer - yes, prior 1.
