Go - Type Conversions

In Go assignments between items of different types require an explicit conversion.

Type conversions are performed using the expression T(v) which converts the value v to the type T.

var i int = 25
var f float64 = float64(i) // Convert to float64
var u uint = uint(f) // Convert to uint

Or inside a function:

i := 25
f := float64(i) // Convert to float64
u := uint(f) // Convert to uint
