Echo is a leading framework for creating web applications with the Go language.  This book will show you how to develop scalable real-world web apps, RESTful services, and backend systems with Echo.

After a thorough understanding of the basics, you'll be introduced to all the concepts for a building real-world web system with Echo. You will start with the the Go HTTP standard library, and setting up your work environment. You will move on to Echo handlers, group routing, data binding, and middleware processing. After that, you will learn how to test your Go application and use templates.

By the end of this book you will be able to build your very own high performance apps using Echo.

A Quick Start Guide is a focussed, shorter title which provides a faster paced introduction to a technology. They are for people who don’t need all the detail at this point in their learning curve. The presentation has been streamlined to concentrate on the things you really need to know, rather than everything.

  • The easiest way to learn how to build web apps with Echo
  • Build a full working project
