Resources to learn Go(lang) — Andy Grunwald — Software Engineer from Germany
Since some time i am fascinated by the go programing language launched by Google in 2009.
I am a person with a scripting language background (PHP and Python) and was motivated to learn a new programing language.
I chose go(lang), because i wanted to do some system programing with concurrency support.
Because i share my love with my friends and colleagues i am often asked How do i start with Go? or Do you got some good resources to learn Go?.
This article is about which resources i used to learn Go.
- The A Tour of Go is the best start. It provides an overview about the syntax and the features in a short way.
- The book Go in Action is a good recommendation to get some backgrounds, best practices, pitfalls and usecases for language features. Even it is a MEAP this is worth to read.
- The guide for golang: Effective Go. It describes all features with backgrounds and examples.
- Read foreign go code of projects like docker, etcd or termius.
And of course: Next to this start your own Go project.
I recomment to start with it after you finished the A Tour of Go and during reading Go in Action.
Some ideas for a project:
- A small rest API (http server)
- A small chat client (sockets)
- A small web / mailinglist crawler (concurrency)
Further useful resources are:
And now: Have fun during learn a new programing language!
