Go Training Overview

Go is a powerful programming language originally designed by engineers at Google. Accelebrate’s Introduction to Go Programming class teaches experienced programmers how to write software in Go to solve a wide array of problems.

During the training, attendees share a “game” server to interact with each other via defined APIs. Attendees also check their understanding of Go by reviewing and modifying open-source Go projects. This course will explore concurrency (by diving into more concurrency patterns), and the standard library, as well as provide more coding activities using popular Go libraries/frameworks (such as logging and microservices).
