Become a Full-Stack Golang Developer - Learn everything from Front & Back-End Programming to deployment
Go is one of the most powerful, efficient, and highly performant programming languages. Go has seen an increased rate of adoption mainly because it is lightweight, easy to use, and displays great robustness when performing in a variety of domains. If you're a developer who wish to learn Go programming language to become a full-stack Go developer, then this learning path is for you.
This comprehensive 4-in-1 course is designed to teach you full-stack web development with Golang. You will learn to design the frontend and backend of any application along with deploying it to a cloud-based, production environment with hands-on examples. You will also learn to build various applications and enhance them in real-time.
This training program includes 4 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Go Essentials for Full Stack Web Development, will start by introducing you to programming with Go. You will then learn how to install Go and how to configure your workspace and development environment. You will also learn basic Golang concepts and will explore arrays, slices, maps and user-defined types in Golang. Next, you will learn Go's built-in concurrency constructs and tools included in Go. Finally, you will implement a simple web server using Go.
The second course, Back-End Web Development using Go, starts off with covering essential concepts which include web templates, the model view controller pattern, managing requests and responses, and building web forms. You will learn uploading image/video files, implementing a datastore for a variety of databases (relational, document, and in-memory), creating secure cookies, implementing authentication middleware, and implementing an asynchronous task queue to perform long-running tasks in the background.
The fourth course, Go Production Deployments, starts off by showing you how to provision a virtual server instance on the Linode cloud, install MySQL and Nginx, and obtain and install a free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt. You will then be introduced to Linode, a major cloud provider of virtual private servers. You will also see how to cross-compile a Go application, prepare and deploy a production deployment bundle. Next, you will find out how to dockerize a Go application and use the Docker Compose tool to define and run a multi-container Docker application. Finally, you will see how to turn a dockerized Go application into a system service.
By the end of this Learning Path, you'll become a full-stack web developer who'll be able to design the frontend and backend of any application along with deploying it to a cloud-based, production environment.
