Apply the incredible language to build web-scale, real-time systems and applications on your own
Go is on the rise and showing itself as a powerful option in many software development domains. If you’re looking to explore Go in depth and learn how to build real-world apps, then this Learning Path is for you. It 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.
The 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!
