Unit 1. Imperative programming

Most computer programs are a series of steps, like the directions for your mom’s stroganoff. Tell a computer precisely how to accomplish a task, and it can do all sorts of things. Writing down these instructions is known as imperative programming. If only computers could cook!

In unit 1, you’ll review Go fundamentals and start learning the syntax Go uses to instruct your computer. Each lesson builds up the knowledge you’ll need to tackle your first challenge: an app that lists ticket prices for a vacation to Mars.
