Learning Go: An Idiomatic Approach to Real-World Go Programming, 2nd Edition

Go has rapidly become the preferred language for building web services. Plenty of tutorials are available to teach Go’s syntax to developers with experience in other programming languages, but tutorials aren’t enough. They don’t teach Go’s idioms, so developers end up recreating patterns that don’t make sense in a Go context. This practical guide provides the essential background you need to write clear and idiomatic Go.

This Learning Go, 2nd Edition book helps you:

  • Write idiomatic code in Go and design a Go project
  • Understand the reasons behind Go’s design decisions
  • Set up a Go development environment for a solo developer or team
  • Learn how and when to use reflection, unsafe, and cgo
  • Discover how Go’s features allow the language to run efficiently
  • Know which Go features you should use sparingly or not at all
  • Use Go’s tools to improve performance, optimize memory usage, and reduce garbage collection
  • Learn how to use Go’s advanced development tools

No matter your level of experience, you’ll learn how to think like a Go developer. Author Jon Bodner introduces the design patterns experienced Go developers have adopted and explores the rationale for using them. This updated Learning Go, 2nd Edition also shows you how Go’s generics support fits into the language.
