No prerequisites. Everything is explained from the ground up.
This course is for everyone — programmers, and non-programmers alike.
Explanations are simple, but not simplistic.
If you are new to programming, you will find an easy entry door here.
Start learning from scratch, or review what you have forgotten from other studies.
Many believe that Go is the new C.
Also known as Golang, it was designed at Google in 2007 to improve programming productivity in an era of multicore, networked machines, and large codebases.
Subscribe and let’s begin.
This tutorial is a comfortable introduction to GO syntax with short practicing exercises and code tips.
It is designed for you, a busy professional with no time to waste, wanting to review or incrementally learn GO at your own pace.
Go Syntax Explained (1) does not promise you the world;
it is just a step in the right direction in a practical, entertaining, and accessible way.
- This study will prepare you for more advanced courses in an amazing short time without having to memorize anything.
Programming languages are extensive. No single course will make you a master as mastering takes time and repetition.
Start small and empower yourself with solid practicing examples that can be revisited individually.
Go Syntax Explained (1) is the entry point. Are you ready?
Let us begin now. Everyone is welcome.
What you will learn
To give you a more effective study outcome, this course is purposefully limited in scope.
Attempting to cover everything about GO would not be practical, and it would do you a disservice.
However, you will learn quite a lot in a truly short time and you can always return to repeat the exercises.
Go Syntax Explained (1) covers the fundamentals of GO in plain language, offering you exercises in the following topics:
- Basic syntax introduction.
- Datatypes and their purpose.
- Control flow with if, else, and switch.
- Basic functions, arguments, parameters.
- Passing data by value.
- Passing data by reference with pointers. (Great explanation)
- How to install and test GO locally.
- Basic command line or terminal skills. (step by step)
- How to get input data from the keyboard
- How to create files and folders via the terminal.
- How to create a GO file.
- How to run a GO file.
- How to create an executable file from GO source code.
- Introduction to input output in GO and how to write to a file.
- Some advanced concepts that need to be covered early on.
(Data structures will be introduced on other volumes.
You will not need them for the GO exercises discussed in this project).
Each lesson is short and to the point
I know, it is hard to return home after a long day’s work and still try learning something new.
You want to study a programming language, perhaps your very first one, but at the end of the day, your energy is just not there.
So, what can you do?
- First, choose a programming language that matters in 2021 and beyond
With so many languages to choose from, what if you pick the wrong one and only discover your mistake months later?
So many decisions and so little time to waste. This course will assist you in your GO learning journey.
- Second, choose a short (but meaningful) course of study.
My friend, if you feel overwhelmed but still want to learn something new, this course series is for you.
First, you will be learning one of the hottest languages in the planet, the GO language or Golang.
Learning GO will put you ahead of the game.
Yes, being a well written language, studying GO may clear up any confusion you have about older languages you already know.
You see, many languages offer a variety of ways to accomplish a similar outcome.
In contrast, GO offers a one-way to write code and write it well, and that makes the language easier to learn and easier to program with.
It also makes you a better programmer because you have more energy to think about solutions rather than syntax.
For example, when it comes to loops, why should you learn so many keywords, such as while, do, until, for, and so on?
The creators of GO decided that we only need a single keyword to declare a loop, the for keyword.
When programmers know what they are doing, they avoid unnecessary abstractions that bloat the language.
You can write any other loop outcome by just using FOR.
As a benefit, you will not have to memorize unnecessary commands that lead to the same outcome.
That is simplicity at its best.
- In addition, this course series takes in consideration your limited daily study time.
Here, topics are written recursively and with plenty of self-contained exercises so that you don’t have to start afresh when you forget things after taking a few days off.
- And every concept is explained in plain language, avoiding industry jargon.
If you are present for a few minutes a day, you will learn how to program in GO.
And that is it, my friend. I was thinking of busy people while designing the course. If you invest a few minutes a day with it, you will learn and grow, and you’ll still have enough of your evening to enjoy quality time with your family and friends.
