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.
