Go is fairly young language. It was developed inhouse by Google and one of the reasons it was developed was that the founding fathers of Go we're not happy where C++ and Java had brought them. The 'old' languages lacked support for multicore/multithread systems and were not developed to work in heavilly networked environments. Also they didn't make any improvement to developer productivity. Did I mention how many cups of coffee you can drink while compiling a large C++ code base? Go is going to change that for you.

By the way, the founding fathers of Go have earned there merits in B (predecessor of C language) and the UNIX and famous PLAN9 operating systems.

Did you know that GO is the language in which alot of modern tools and systems you love nowadays are programmed?

Let me sum up a few of them:

  - Docker
  - Kubernetes
  - Helm
  - CockroachDB
  - MongoDB
  - Etc

  • Testing and Debugging: Acquire skills in testing and debugging Go applications. Understand the importance of unit testing, learn to write testable code, and explore the testing framework provided by Go. Develop proficiency in debugging techniques and tools to effectively identify and resolve issues in your Go programs.
  • Embracing Best Practices: Learn industry best practices for Go programming, including code organization, project structure, naming conventions, and documentation. Understand how to write idiomatic Go code and adhere to the Go community's coding style guidelines.
  • Exploring Advanced Topics: Delve into advanced Go topics such as reflection, interfaces, concurrent patterns, and advanced data structures. Expand your knowledge and skills to tackle more complex programming challenges using Go.
  • Building Real-World Projects: Apply your knowledge by working on hands-on projects that simulate real-world scenarios. Develop practical problem-solving skills, gain experience in working with external libraries and APIs, and build a portfolio of projects that showcase your proficiency in Go programming.
  • Engaging with the Go Community: Discover the vibrant Go community and engage in discussions, forums, and open-source projects. Learn how to leverage community resources, contribute to the Go ecosystem, and stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the language.
  • By the end of the course, you should have a strong foundation in Go programming, enabling you to confidently develop applications, understand Go's unique features, write efficient code, and actively participate in the growing Go community.


Course Requirements

To effectively engage in our Go training, a basic understanding of programming concepts is beneficial. While Go is known for its simplicity and beginner-friendly nature, having a foundation in programming principles can help learners grasp the concepts more easily. Some prior knowledge that can be helpful includes:


  • Basic Programming Concepts: Familiarity with fundamental programming concepts like variables, data types, control structures (e.g., loops, conditionals), functions, and basic algorithms will provide a solid starting point for learning Go.
  • Syntax and Language Constructs: While Go has a clean and intuitive syntax, having experience with another programming language can help in quickly understanding and adapting to Go's specific syntax and language constructs.
  • Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) Concepts: Although Go is not an object-oriented language, having a basic understanding of object-oriented programming concepts like encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism can be beneficial, as it provides a broader perspective on software development principles.



  • Upon request of many of our customers we can (and have) delivere(d) this course also fully customized to the customer's needs and environment. For example we can add a 1 or 2 days to train developers how to work with the K8S API or how to write Operators for K8S in Go.


This extraordinary training is currently exclusively available via our class-room, live online or on-site experience.

Introduction To Programming In Go

Sales Tax Included
    • Simplicity and Readability: Go is known for its clean and straightforward syntax. It was intentionally designed to be simple and easy to understand, making it an excellent choice for beginners and experienced programmers alike. The emphasis on readability allows developers to write efficient and maintainable code, reducing complexity and making collaboration within teams more seamless.


    • Concurrency and Scalability: Go was built with concurrency in mind. Its innovative concurrency model, based on goroutines and channels, makes it effortless to write concurrent programs. This enables developers to create highly scalable and efficient systems that can handle thousands of concurrent operations without sacrificing performance. Go's native support for concurrency helps reduce the complexity of building concurrent applications, a task that can be challenging in other programming languages.


    • Performance: Go is renowned for its exceptional performance. Its compilation process produces highly optimized binaries, resulting in fast execution times. The language itself is designed to minimize memory consumption, making it ideal for building applications that require efficiency and speed. Go's performance characteristics are especially valuable in domains such as web development, networking, distributed systems, and cloud computing.


    • Strong Standard Library: Go has a robust standard library that provides a wide range of functionalities for common tasks such as networking, file handling, encryption, and more. The standard library is well-designed, easy to use, and extensively documented. By leveraging the standard library, developers can save time and effort by utilizing pre-built components, allowing them to focus more on application-specific logic.


    • Growing Popularity and Industry Adoption: Go has experienced significant growth in popularity and industry adoption since its release. Many large-scale organizations, including Google, Dropbox, Uber, and Docker, have embraced Go for their critical systems and applications. Learning Go can open doors to exciting job opportunities, as the demand for skilled Go developers continues to rise.


    • Cross-Platform Compatibility: Go is a cross-platform language, allowing developers to write code on one operating system and easily compile and run it on various platforms such as Windows, macOS, and Linux. This cross-platform compatibility simplifies the development process and ensures that Go applications can be deployed on different environments without major modifications. Did you know that you can produce a binary for ARM64 or RISCV64 by setting just one ENV variable?


    • Community and Ecosystem: Go has a vibrant and supportive community of developers. The Go community actively contributes to open-source projects, libraries, and frameworks, providing a wealth of resources and tools for developers to utilize. The community's collaborative nature fosters knowledge sharing, making it easier to find solutions to problems and stay updated on best practices.

    In summary, learning Go can provide you with a versatile and powerful programming language that offers simplicity, excellent performance, strong concurrency support, and a growing ecosystem. Whether you're interested in building web applications, distributed systems, or command-line tools, Go equips you with the tools and capabilities to tackle a wide range of software development challenges effectively.

    Due to the original domain name of the Go website, Go is still refered to as Go lang in some literature. But the official naming is just plain Go.

    But.. join us in the Go adventure! GO lang or go home! :)
