Video Description

The Go Programming Language's adoption by developers for building web applications has been on the rise. With its ecosystem growing in size and its stable architecture, Go offers a strong library for building scalable and high-performant web services and apps.

In this first of the four core sections that make up this course, we will start by introducing you to programming with Go. We will show you how to install Go and how to configure your workspace and development environment. We will move on to demonstrate basic Go concepts, to provide you with a strong foundation. We will explore arrays, slices, maps and user-defined types. Moving on, we will take a look at Go's built-in concurrency constructs and introduce you to several tools included with Go. We will finish the section by implementing a simple web server using Go.

By the end of the video, you will learn the tricks to building robust, secure, and fully-featured applications for the web.

Style and Approach

This course is targeted at Go developers interested in learning how to use Go to build powerful web applications, and who want to learn full-stack web development using Go. Additionally, students who want to harness the power of Go, both on the backend and frontend, to create sophisticated, efficient, and production-ready web applications will also benefit.
