Writing Web Services in Go
Come and see why Google’s new language Go is being widely adopted.
Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It’s a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language. (from the website)
In this two day workshop we’ll cover the language basics, touch best practices and develop several web services in Go. We are going to write a lot of code and also cover best practices such as debugging & testing. Prior knowledge in Go is not required, however some programming experience is required
