Using Golang to connect Raspberry PIs and Arduinos over serial

The code running on Raspberry PI’s within the gasworks project (An art installation that loosely mimics brain cells as clusters of lights) is all written in Golang. While, the hardware architecture for each of the neurones has a Raspberry PI sending commands to an Arduino over serial. This communication link was one of the first things I prototyped for the project.
