Description

There are an endless number of programming languages out there, and new ones are added on an almost daily basis. To keep on top of the game and broaden your skill set, picking up a few of these new languages never hurts. Google Go (golang) is the programming language created by one of the largest technology names in the world – Google – so having Go in your arsenal is a surefire way to add to your coding credentials. This course will teach you everything you need to know about Go.

Hands on Programming Training

  • Learn Go fundamentals and apply them in real world scenarios
  • Get to grip with advanced features like Go Language and Concurrency
  • Understand and develop your knowledge of programming fundamentals
  • Build up a knowledge foundation for more advanced programming languages
  • Learn the language behind the super popular Docker technology
  • Everything you Need to Get up and Go!

This Google Go Programming for Beginners (Golang) course has been designed for anyone who is familiar with coding and programming languages, but has not yet turned their hand to Google Go. It’s also perfect for beginner programmers who want to diversify their skills by learning a new language. It’s not intended for complete beginners learning their first language, although it does make an excellent follow-up course.

The course is broken into several different sections which become increasingly more advanced as you progress. You will be continuously challenged, but able to move at a comfortable pace (without becoming overwhelmed). It’s all about hands on training, so expect to jump right into the action and get coding with real world golang examples.

After you’ve been introduced to the Go language, you’ll get to grips with its individual features, functions, structures and interfaces. You’ll then expand your knowledge to elements like polymorphism, encryption and concurrency (among others) before tackling the course project. On completion, you’ll be well versed in all things Go and ready to either start using it in real world applications, or move on to another more advanced programming language.

Your instructor, Brett Romero, has been programming throughout his entire career. Programming for desktop, web and mobile, Brett is an expert in Python, C#, PHP, Java, Swift, and more.

Tools Used

  • LiteIDE: Lite IDE is the open source integrated development environment used in conjunction with Go to write code. If you are unable to use LiteIDE for this course, golang is a useful alternative.
  • Google Go: Go is an open source programming language developed by Google and used in many of their systems (as well as in other applications not associated with Google). It is compiled in the tradition of C and C++ and is relatively simple to pick up for those with programming experience.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
