Go is the language of the Internet age, because it was built from the ground up to support modern distributed web software. Go is also cross-platform as it compiles to numerous operating systems and CPU architectures via simple commands. It compiles to native binaries, it doesn't use a VM, and is garbage-collected, which makes it a breeze to deploy in production environments.
Throughout the course, we will use modern open source third party packages in Go to build a distributed application that will support several databases, establish efficient serial communications techniques, and construct an advanced web layer with templates, cookies, and websockets support.
We will start with a refresher on Go's primary building blocks. From there, we will explore numerous open source packages that allow working with a variety of databases in a production environment as well as an ORM layer. We will then explore building reliable and robust microservices that communicate efficiently with each other via fast serialization and RPC techniques. Finally, we will develop knowledge on powerful third party templating engines and web toolkits, to construct a modern web layer with a RESTful API.
