Course Description

Go has moved from the state of tentative to mass adoption. Its C-likespeed, simplicity, and power for a growing number of systems levelprogramming domains make it an attractive option for programmers workingwith older cumbersome, statically typed languages. Golang has enteredthe space as an entirely viable language for accomplishing a huge arrayof low level programming and service infrastructure tasks.
This video course not only gives you a deep insight into thefundamental mechanics behind the language, but also covers extensivepractical topics on Go for modern software architectures. It shows youhow to write Go in an intelligent, idiomatic way. After a briefre-acquaintance with the key building blocks of Go, we will also explorehow we can build upon the unique capabilities of the language to writeeffective, powerful code you can employ to develop software. We look atpackages, object-oriented programming, concurrency and reflection amongother things. Moreover, you will learn about Go's awesome built-intesting support feature. Along the way, build your skills in Filehandling techniques, Go packages for databases, data serializationapproaches, message communications between Go services, and Go webapplications. Get your hands on with a plenty of illustrative codesamples, exercises and real-world scenarios that will help you buildyour own application.
By the end of this course, you will be taught how to put thisenhanced knowledge to build a real-world Spaceship application all byyourself with amazing features.

for me this was a very good insight into advanced golang techniques using a concrete example. thanks a lot.

This course is a bit outdated in the DB section. Otherwise really good

It still abstract in my mind, Maybe the rate will increase after I learn this course

sort and perfect

Outstanding Instruction. Thank you

- Minas talks slow so pump the speed up to 2x.- Good content, well explained.- Do the testing section after the DB section as it depends on it.

Sound quality is poor and the speed of the teaching painfully slow (sometimes even at x1.75 speed), but I just started the course, so I hope that the content would be good to change this rate.Update: I am pretty disappointed about how a practical example is explained (hydra chat). Going through the code explaining any single line without having a general design idea (what we want to have at the end) makes the reason behind the implementation details hard to get.

Voice modulation could be better suited to keep the student interested and engrossed in the topic

well selected topics, I've learnt a lot. (had to use 1.25 speed option but it's fine)

Had to run it 1.5x faster

Schrift in Terminal kaum lesbar

So far it is way better than the other go course I started. I feel like I am actually learning something here
