The Complete Developer's Guide (Golang)

Go is an open source programming language created by Google. As one of the fastest growing languages in terms of popularity, its a great time to pick up the basics of Go.

This course is designed to get you up and running as fast as possible with Go. We'll quickly cover the basics, then dive into some of the more advanced features of the language. Don't be tricked by other courses that only teach you for-loops and if-statements. This is the only course on Udemy that will teach you how to use the full power of Go's concurrency model and interface type systems.

Go is designed to be easy to pick up, but tough to master. Through multiple projects, quizzes, and assignments, you'll quickly start to master the language's quirks and oddities. Go is like any other language - you have to write code to learn it. This course will give you ample opportunities to strike out on your own and start working on your own programs.

In this course you will:

  • Understand the basic syntax and control structures of the language
  • Apply Go's concurrency model to build massively parallel systems
  • Grasp the purpose of types, which is especially important if you're coming from a dynamically typed language like Javascript or Ruby
  • Organize code through the use of packages
  • Use the Go runtime to build and compile projects
  • Get insight into critical design decisions in the language
  • Gain a sense of when to use basic language features

Go is one of the fastest-growing programming languages released in the last ten years. Get job-ready with Go today by enrolling now.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

highly recommend in 22 reviews

I would highly recommend it to others.

If you are already fluent in another programming language, I highly recommend listening at 1.25 speed.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn Go!

Overall, I'd highly recommend this course and find Stephen to be a fantastic teacher, able to break things down in a very easy to understand way.

Just great course for any beginner, highly recommend!

A lot of Stephen's courses, which I would highly recommend, have great projects that you get to work on.

Still highly recommend this course and I will keep a watch for other courses from this instructor.

highly recommend would love to see more projects Empieza desde bien abajo, desde lo básico de lo básico, y va profundizado con una agudeza impresionante.

teaching style in 12 reviews

2 stars only to Stephen's teaching style.

I really enjoy Stephen teaching style!

The instructor's teaching style was extremely clear, precise & to the point.

His teaching style is perfect.

Anyway, between this course and a youtube tutorial or a book, I'll take this course anytime I took several Stephen's courses as I like his teaching style.

I really like the teaching style - Stephen is a really good instructor and i've been taking a lot of his courses + really enjoiying them Really appreciate this course, thumb up instructor :) Solid instructor with clean code examples It's a very good course.

I like the teaching style I'm an experienced developer in other languages and wanted to learn Go so that I can start with it.

Great teaching style which makes it really easy to understand difficult concepts.

more real world in 9 reviews

I would like more real world commercial applications in Golang though.

This course will be much more greater if the instructor includes more real world use cases like http server, websocket or service development.

However, It would be better if it's more real world application such as "http library" or "defer function", "go get depedency", and "JSON Marshal".

Some more real world examples would have been useful but overall a great intro to Go.

I hope he makes a continuation of this course that dives deeper into more real world applications of Go (like building an API).

It could have been better if some more real world exercises were taken.

Would be nice to have more real world applications of the language though.

I would have like to see more real world examples and exception handling.

other than in 9 reviews

Other than these, the instruction is OK The reason I gave 2 stars is that it called the "complete developer's guide".

While the content is great and I appreciate that we do get some interaction with I/O and the http package, we don't actually build anything in this course that is useful, other than a conceptual understanding of Go itself and get to work through some potential sticking points like Interfaces and Go Routines + channels.

I want my code to run somewhere other than my laptop... very good course though.

Other than that just great.

Other than a few quizzes there are no actual exercises.

Other than that it’s been such a valuable course so far, loving it :) So far seems like everything (ie downloading go & setting up vscode) would have been better handled by two bullet points in a doc.

Other than that the course is really good.

Wish the course would be more in-depth but I guess there is little to learn about go other than language syntax and go packages.Am I right?

experienced programmer in 8 reviews

If you are an experienced programmer, you'll find this to be a fast and to the point introduction to this new language, with useful hints to be able to continue study and practicing on your own.

If you're already an experienced programmer or an engineer/computer scientist, you will find the course easy, but specific, and can learn all in matter of hours (a weekend is much more than enough) if you have the time.

Very good at generally explaining the language from the perspective of an experienced programmer, making it a quick and easy learn.

Simple explanation for quite complicated things, but same time material is not long too many breaks and it’s very basic for an experienced programmer Now it is kind of putting some details I knew together Simply GREAT and easy to follow Always amazing content.

It is too slow for an experienced programmer who wants to learn go, and it is too basic.

I am an experienced programmer so some of this does feel a little slow.

Nicely paced for an experienced programmer.

Great for experienced programmer who want to learn "Go" , quick This is an excellent course.
