Though it's now ten years old, Golang (Google's Go language) is one of the fastest growing languages out there right now. Do you want to learn it? Here are 10 great places to start.
This is a great place to get started from zero. If you're committed to downloading and installing it shows you how, and you dig into some basic stuff. It's a good start.
This is a fairly new source so I haven't been able to dig into all the features of it, but it has tutorials for installing, doing a hello world, etc. It seems like the perfect jumping off point.
This is a good place to start to get started as easy as possible. It doesn't have you building real applications, but you also don't have to install or setup anything.
This one digs a little deeper and tackles things like pointers and concurrency which are tough at first.
This is a book in downloadable form or online, and it's well organized and clear for the basics.
This is a great book to go from total beginner to digging into deeper topics. It's well worth the price and is a great way to get started writing real application.
The justforfunc youtube channel is great for digging into to Golang. Francesc Campoy is entertaining and knowledgeable. Check it out.
This is a little older, but still a great book for getting the basics down. It's fun and well organized.
This is a great series of tutorials for learning go, that's easy to follow and fun.
So now you know some Go and want to play? This is a great place to polish your skills. This site has some cool coding exercises to try out.
Golang is awesome. I love working with it, and you probably will to. The resources above are great places to get your feet wet and really start developing some cool stuff. What do you think of the list? Should I add anything? Reach out to me with suggestions!
