Learning Path: Master Google’s Go

Learn how to use this incredible language to build web-scale, real-time systems and applications on your own


Surely, you have heard about Go, which is on the rise and showing itself as a powerful option in many software development domains. Are you’re looking to explore Go in depth and learn how to build real-world apps? Master Google’s Go is a Learning Path that introduces you to different programming projects ranging from command-line tools to distributed messaging services, web services, and web applications with Go running on the server side.

Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

This Learning Path starts by demonstrating how versatile the Go language can be and how it can be put to use in a range of real-world programming domains, whether that’s for DevOps tools, cloud-based services, or RESTful web services. Interwoven with the projects, there are examples of best practices and design patterns, and techniques you can carry over to your own projects. The projects also display the key features of Go in action, such as concurrency, and will start to explore the rich ecosystem of open source libraries and frameworks that are being continually developed for the language. You’ll also learn the concepts of a single-page web application and create a dynamic user interface using templates, manipulate a database, and use powerful encryption algorithms to implement an authentication system.

By the end of the Learning Path, you will be able to build your own projects in no time!

For this course, we have combined the best works of these extremely esteemed authors:

Ben Tranter has more than six years of experience as a developer. He has worked with a variety of companies to build applications in Go, in the areas of data mining, web back ends, user authentication services, and developer tools, and is a contributor to a variety of open source Go projects.

Larry Price is a software engineer with a passion for exploring the world of programming. He has a wide experience in building software with programming languages such as Go, Ruby, JavaScript, and C++. He fell in love with Go a couple of years ago and has taken every opportunity to utilize it at home and work. He has used go to build web applications or create utility scripts, and often documents the experiences on his blog.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is aimed at programmers who are currently hacking around in Go, know the fundamentals, but need a more structured way of understanding how to put this knowledge into practice. Experienced programmers with a background in another language—this can be anything from Ruby to C or JavaScript—can also take up this course.
