One of the most important tools the Go team has created to help people learn Go is the Go tour (tour.golang.org)

It allows the user to learn the basics of Go and put them in practice directly on their browsers, running code without installing any compiler.

Implementing this in a safe way is not an easy task! In this talk I present some techniques used to make sure everything goes as expected.

This includes virtual machines, running sandboxed code, and extra monitoring for when none of the precedent systems catches the intruder.
