Cross compiling Go for Winkhub

How I cross compiled Go to run on the Winkhub and installed a custom web app to control the lights locally.

TL;DR; Be sure to compile with Go 1.5 with the following settings:
GOOS=linux GOARCH=arm GOARM=5 go build .

TL;DR; I rooted my Winkhub over the UART connection and then wrote a small Go web service to allow me to turn my lights on and off from my phone.
