Course description

Go, often referred to as Golang, is a programming language created at Google and publicly released in the year of 2009 as an open source project. Go is a statically compiled language, built to resemble C in form and function. The story of Go begins as an internal Google experiment, to create a language which will address the flaws met in other programming languages by keeping only the “good parts”. Go is an extremely easy language to learn. Its basic concepts are drawn to a minimum, and its syntax has been designed to be clean and unambiguous. Mostly used for building distributed systems and microservices, Go has become an irreplaceable tool. One of the key factors that prove that, are it’s growing community, and active development. In the past couple of years Go has always been in the top 10 programming languages that developers choose for their projects. It’s mix of simplicity, speed, and ability to act as a system language paved the path to where it is right now, and according to some, towards the future.
