Workshop: Secrets of Go(lang) language
Go(lang) is an open source programming language built by Google which gained popularity in recent years. Go is fast, simple, and has a great community behind it. Go was adopted rapidly by the major tech hubs in the recent years and continues to gain popularity.One of the strongest sides of Go is a built-in concurrency model which allows us to build complex concurrent pipelines.
The goal of the workshop?
The goal of this workshop is to explore some of the Go world, like its basic features and tooling with focus on the implementation of concurrency model. These concepts will be used to build a small application.
What will we do in this workshop
This workshop will contain a theoretical part in which the concepts mentioned above will be explained using many examples.
In the second part of the workshop, we will build a small application in which the learned concepts will be implemented.
You are in the target of the audience if you:
- Are a technical person and has basic programming skills and mindset in any language
- Are curious about how Go works
What will you learn at the end:
At the end of the workshop, you will have a deeper understanding on what is Go, what are the tools used to write code in Go, the language’s basic features and how concurrency model works.
What tools do you need installed on your computer before the workshop starts
- laptop with Go installed – https://golang.org/doc/install
