Comprehensive Golang Programming


Course Number: GO-106

Duration: 5 days (32.5 hours)

Format: Live, hands-on

Comprehensive Golang Training Overview

Accelebrate’s Comprehensive Golang training course teaches attendees the fundamentals and advanced concepts of the Go programming language (also called Golang). First, students learn how to set up a Go environment and how to use Go’s variables, functions, commands, operators, library, and more. After learning the basics, participants learn more advanced skills including using advanced functions, testing and debugging, implementing project structures, and more. At the conclusion of this Go course, each student will complete a final CLI-based application project, gaining skills they can immediately use in their future projects.
