About the course
Get productive in Go quickly by dodging common roadblocks; Video Course
Go is a powerful, general-purpose language that is exceptional for writing anything from servers to command-line utilities. Meant to replace languages such as Java and C++, its performance and accessibility have found an eager audience in developers from compiled and interpreted languages alike.
Much of Go's power comes from its simplicity. Although a high-level language, it doesn't have much in the way of bells and whistles. Newcomers from all languages tend to trip over the same design decisions that are less common among other languages.
In this course, you will learn to effortlessly surmount these hurdles and become more productive quickly, writing fast, stable code and, hopefully, having more fun coding than ever before!
