This Go language programming training course will help you understand how Go works, and immediately be more productive. If you are building a team using Go, this will be a great opportunity to get your team on the same page and speaking the same language. The materials and presentation focus on teaching students how to write clear and robust code to create real-world solutions. Innovative lab exercises and code samples are provided to reinforce skills and quickly master the topics.

This three-day Golang training course includes time for instructor presentation, instructor-led demos, hands-on lab time, and Q&A. If customization is required, the class duration may change.

What you will learn
•    Learn the basic structural elements of a Go program
•    Learn to use the basic types, aggregate types, reference types, and interfaces
•    Learn error-handling strategies
•    Learn to compose types and implement encapsulation
•    Learn how to create a method (receiver function) on a struct
•    Learn how and when to use pointers
•    Learn how to use the interface type to enforce a contract
