Hello everyone,

I'm back again with part 2 of this Go Lang series. I was always wanting to learn more about it but never dedicated the time. Fast-forward to today and I'm learning it live on my Twitch stream using Microsoft Learn's free, online training platform.

In this lesson, We cover how to:

  • Declare variables and constants
  • Learn about the basic data types available in Go
  • Write functions
  • Create and use packages
