Learn Go programming language with simple examples

The purpose of go-examples project is to learn Go programming language through simple programs which will cover all the concepts & syntax of Go programming language. Instead of directly going deep dive into complex concepts it is always better to start with the basics in order to understand any programming language easily, Same concept will be applied to go-examples as well. I have started with the basics and then slowly moving to complex concepts.
