Get started with the Go Programming Language with Microsoft Learn! (no experience needed)

mbcrump profile image Michael Crump Updated on ・1 min read

Hello everyone,

I was recently thinking about trying out another programming language and landed on the Go Language developed by Google. I decided to learn it live on my Twitch stream and take advantage of
Microsoft Learn's free, online training platform. What I enjoy about the learning experience is a mix of fun, guided, hands-on, and interactive content (such as quizzes and more).

Pretty neat, huh?

You can checkout the video that I made showing this off in action or you can jump straight into the module now.

This is what the module covers:

  • Install and configure Go on your local workstation.
  • Install and configure Visual Studio Code and the Go extension.
  • Explore the Go Playground.
  • Create your first Go application.

Video (12 mins)

Conclusion

Feel free to checkout my Twitch streams as we learn about security and app development or you can watch the condensed version of all of my streams by subscribing to my YouTube.

Stay connected with me on social platforms for daily software development news.

I enjoy Go quite a bit, but it def took a while to get a hang of the language intricacies.
