As a seasoned C# developer you should be familiar with the common pitfalls of closures where a variable in a lambda function is not always what you think it is. Go's pointers can easily introduce a similar problem even without the use of lambdas.
Go for C# developers: Go for Java developers
Ok, so I was lucky. Somebody else already covered the basics and I share the first impressions covered in this article. Since Java and C# (at least compared to Go) are pretty much the same, this is a good first read if you are in the C# world and want to explore the Go world. However there are two things I would like to point out.

DRY vs WET
I've always been and advocate for intentionally ignoring the DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) rule when writing tests if it makes the tests easier to understand. I've even (repeatably) said that some duplication might actually be a good thing when writing tests.
