Exploring the major features and packages of Go, along with its types and data-structures, enabling the reader to write threadsafe, concurrent cloud, and network applicationsKey FeaturesNot your typical introduction to the Golang programming languageExploring Golang cradle to grave, completes the developer's Golang educationA thorough exploration into the core libraries and Golang features, that usually are taken for grantedIn depth explanation, detailing the rationale behind composite data types, Golang concurrency, and the Golang networking libraryBook Description
Often referred to as Golang (albeit wrongly), the Go programming language is really making strides thanks to some masterclass developments, architected by the greatest programming minds. Shopify CEO Tobias Lutke has been recently quoted as saying "Go will be the server language of the future." Go programmers are in high demand, but - more controversially - Go takes the stage where C and Unix programmers previously led the way.
The growth of the Go language has seen it become the means by which systems, networking, web, and cloud applications are implemented. If you're a Go programmer, you'll already know some Go syntax and will have written some small projects. However, most Go programmers face the difficulty of having to integrate their Golang skills with production code. With Mastering Go, the author shows you just how to tackle this problem. You'll benefit by mastering the use of the libraries and utilize its features, speed, and efficiency for which the Go ecology is justly famous.
Offering a compendium of Go, the book begins with an account of how Go has been implemented. You'll also benefit from an in-depth account of concurrency and systems and network programming imperative for modern-day native cloud development through the course of the book.What you will learnUnderstand the design choices of Golang syntaxKnow enough Go internals to be able to optimize Golang codeAppreciate concurrency models available in GolangUnderstand the interplay of systems and networking codeWrite server-level code that plays well in all environmentsUnderstand the context and appropriate use of Go data types and data structures Who this book is for
This book is for Golang programmers. You should have previously read an introductory book on Go, or to have worked through the Tour of Go or an equivalent online course. This book will definitely help to remember the basic concepts of concurrency, but network programming will be explained. A certain amount of previous coding and production experience would be helpful.
