Go is a relatively new and popular programming language that supports source code compilation into native (machine) code, so the result is fast and memory-efficient applications comparable to the results produced by C, C++, D or Rust compilers. At the same time the Go language uses automatic memory management (GC - garbage collector), so-called goroutines and channels. At the same time Go is based on relatively minimalist syntax, which makes it quite significantly different from C or C++. Currently, Go is mainly used in containers and microservices ecosystems.


Course objective

To inform course participants with all the important features of the Go programming language in such depth that they will be able to create and modify applications written in Go, while the resulting code will be effective and written in an idiomatic way.


Target audience

Users with basic programming knowledge who want to start using this modern programming language.
