Introduces the tools and skills used in a Go workflow—including Go Playground, an online tool that takes Go development off the desktop.
- [Voiceover] I'm David Gassner and this is Up and Running with Go. This course is designed for software developers who want to become Gophers, that is, programmers who use the open-source Go programming language. I'll start with a demonstration of the Go Playground, and online tool that lets you quickly code and run simple Go applications. Then, I'll show you how to install Go on your own computer and set up a development environment. I'll then take you on a tour of Go's core language elements, including basic syntax, how to create variables and constants, and how to manage more complex data in array, slices, and maps.
At the end of the course, I'll describe how to handle simple tasks, such as reading and writing files, making web requests, and working with JSON-formatted data. I hope that this course helps you get started programming with Go.
