This Go language programming training course will help you understand how Go works, and immediately be more productive. If you are building a team using Go, this will be a great opportunity to get your team on the same page and speaking the same language. The materials and presentation focus on teaching students how to write clear and robust code to create real-world solutions. Innovative lab exercises and code samples are provided to reinforce skills and quickly master the topics.

This four-day Golang training course includes time for instructor presentation, instructor-led demos, hands-on lab time, and Q&A. If customization is required, the class duration may change.

What you will learn
•    Learn the basic structural elements of a Go program
•    Learn to use the basic types, aggregate types, reference types, and interfaces
•    Learn error-handling strategies
•    Learn to compose types and implement encapsulation
•    Learn how to create a method (receiver function) on a struct
•    Learn how and when to use pointers
•    Learn how to use the interface type to enforce a contract
•    Learn how and when to use anonymous functions
•    Learn how to send and receive data using channels
•    Learn concurrency and synchronization techniques
•    And much more!

Materials
Attendees will be provided with course materials which include the coursebook in pdf format, dozens of examples of Go, and lab solutions. Example programs are intentionally small and easy to understand, to focus on the language without getting sidetracked by complicated algorithms or data structures.

What Our Clients Say

“Given the breadth of the course, I think it was very well structured and organised, I got a lot
out of it.”     

 

JVM Tuning - Bespoke Course

Live Online - May 2020

 

“This was an excellent course and was lots of fun to attend. Instructor started with basic intro to
containerization, then explained Kubernetes and the different components (Container
engine, orchestrator, control plane) which all made sense because of the containerization
intro. The parts of the course layered on top of one another to give a good understanding of
Kubernetes.”

 

Kubernetes for App Developers - GTLFKAD

Live Online - Nov 2020

 

“Really enjoyed the course, it has been an eye opener on opportunities to steer how we approach the cloud from a IT Service Management perspective.”

''Fantastic course, looking forward to applying this in my work and home life. Excellent, practical approach, very motivational. I think the entire company should attend training.''

 

Being Agile in Business - GTBAB

Sept 2019

“The instructor was great! I didn't expect such a good level of teaching with what some may
consider a dry subject. This was simply great!”
