Hello World

Hello world, hello fromGCP4Us.

Writing a simple Hello World program is the traditional way to learn a new programming language. It consists essentially in writing as little code as possible to print the "Hello World" sentence on the screen. In its simplicity lies its beauty: teaching a new programmer how to get the minimum in place to start interacting with the computer.

Because this is a GCP website, we'll skip the traditional C-based hello world program this time and use Go, the programming language that represents the modern web. A typical hello world written in Go is as simple as: 

package main

import "fmt"

func main(){
    fmt.Println("Hello World")

As strange as a hello world for a new website may seem, the core principle is the same: show (well, tell in our case) to the world that we're here, alive and ready for the challenge of teaching and fostering knowledge for the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to an even wider audience!

About this site

Our team has been discussing for some time how to approach building yet another website about GCP. Since we finally managed to gather the necessary resources (ant time!) to build this website and have lots of ideas for awesome and compelling posts, we decided that now is the best time to start!

Who are us?

Our team is a community of dedicated open-source volunteers who use, write about and ❤ Linux, Go and the Google Cloud Platform. We plan to cover the most diverse topics ranging from very simple tutorials to as complex as necessary to teach users how to use, learn and build awesome tools on/with LinuxGo and GCP.

How can you help

Interested in helping? Check the how anyone can help. We'll resort from the help of the community (sharing posts, giving feedback, sponsorship this site, etc) so we can grow and reach even wider audiences.

Final Thoughts

Thanks for reading thus far! We'll do our best to foster, divulge and teach about Linux because we love it as much as you do and we want it to be available to everyone out that who has a digital device in their hands.

All the best,
The GCP4us team
