Workshop: Web Services in Go

Location: Abbey, 4th flr.

Duration: 9:00am - 4:00pm

Day of week: Friday

Level: All

Prerequisites

If you would like to do some prep-work in Go for the class, please follow this link:

The course material will come from two different repositories.

The one day Ultimate Service is a class for any developer who wishes to gain foundation knowledge on how to build web services in Go. This class provides an intensive, comprehensive and idiomatic view of building web services using community accepted idioms and practices.

The class is broken into two parts. The first part is dedicated to learning about critical aspects of the language mechanics and semantics. The second part is dedicated to building a web service and learning about many of the engineering decisions that need to be considered and handled.

Building Production Web Services in Go

  • Memory Model
  • Data Semantics
  • Decoupling/Composition
  • Start/Stop
  • Logging/Configuration
  • Web Framework Design
  • Building and Docker

What a student is expected to learn:

Everyone is going to be mentally exhausted by the end of the day. We will be challenging every student to think about what they are doing and why. If you want to be a better Go developer, code reviewer, designer and architect, this is the class you want to take.
