Course Description

Go is a new programming language, developed by Google in the 21st century. After its first 1.0 release in 2012, Go quickly became popular, especially for cloud native environments. It is used by Google in house (e.g., for implementing YouTube), and by several leading IT companies, including Uber, SoundCloud, Dropbox and Twitch. Docker and Kubernetes were also written in Go. We can safely say that by now Go is the de-facto standard programming language of cloud native applications.

In this course we introduce participants to this extremely efficient language with plenty of examples and exercises. We also give an insight to cloud native programming with Go, naturally with the active participation of course attendees.

Join us to this exciting learning experience! Let’s Go!
