Learn Go for Beginners Crash Course (Golang)
Master the Go Programming Language Step by Step - No previous programming experience required.
If you are like most people wanting to learn a programming language, you don’t have much spare time. What time you have is extremely valuable. If you want to learn Google’s GO programming language, then, what you need is a course that will teach the essential Go programming skills quickly.
Think of a word processing program like Microsoft word – it has lots of advanced features that most people never use. It’s the same with computer programming. A typical programming language has many parts that rarely get used, and a lot of what is taught in a typical computer course or textbook never gets used in the real world by professional developers.
So why learn it all? It makes much more sense to learn just want you actually need to know to become productive and be then able to apply for GoLang developer positions. If you really want to learn those other parts of the Go lang language, then you can later, and it’s highly likely you will pick it up faster anyway at that point because of the skills you have already learned.
That’s what this course is all about – giving you the skills you need quickly without any fluff or useless information.
The course is aimed at complete beginners. No previous experience is necessary or assumed. If you are coming from another programming language like Java or C++, or C# then you will also feel right at home here, and you can skip any of the introductory parts if you wish. But keep in mind there are differences in Go compared to those languages, so it’s probably a good idea to watch all videos anyway.
What will you learn in the course?
You will learn about many important GO code concepts including.
Learn the syntax of the Go language by writing several simple text-based games
Learn about the difference between Object-oriented programs and Go, which uses Composition
Learn to think like a programmer: making decisions, looping logic, and performing calculations
Learn about Go’s use of goroutines, channels, and the select statement for concurrent programming
Learn how Go can be used to build a production-ready web application
Some of the other specific things you will work through include:-
How to write a Go program
Learn the language while building simple games
Learn all about the Go compiler
Learn best practices when writing Go code
Learn how to write idiomatic Go code
Learn how to build a terminal-based Go program
Learn low to build a basic web-based Go program
Learn how to use delve, the Go debugger, to find and fix errors in your programs
Along the way, we will work with a lot of GO example code. We’ll start with badly written code, and go through it thoroughly to improve it and make it bug-free. This is an essential skill and you will learn that in this course.
The course uses a combination of small snippets of code, and then larger real-world projects that you can run and edit and improve – you will learn how to think like a programmer and how to make the most out of the GO programming language.

I love the Learn Programming as I find they have high quality, Also excited they recruited Trevor Sawler, hopefully he sticks with them for a long time. He is clearly one of the best Go teachers I've come across.

I have coded in Golang earlier . However, this particular course taught me some new things like the debugger delve and how effotlessly Trevor takes a console program and converted into web and REST APIs. So, a big Thank You to Trevor. Nice wrap up by Tim with lots of materials to look up to.

Trevor is an amazing instructor. He's thorough with explanations and has a gift for storytelling that makes it fun learning complex subjects. I have had taken some courses on Udemy up until now, but I can say this with absolute confidence that this is the best one I have ever taken.

yes, I liked the focus for familiarity. Note: windows stdin string is different from mac/linux stdin string. This blew up one of the early programs if working on windows.
