Go Beginner's Guide - Course Overview

May 2, 2021

Course Instructor: Elliot Forbes

Hey Gophers! My name is Elliot and I'm the creator of TutorialEdge and I've been working with Go systems for roughly 5 years now.

Hi Everyone, and welcome to my Beginner’s Guide to Go Course.

Now, in this course, we are going to be covering pretty much everything you need in order to get up and running with the Go programming language.

I’m going to be assuming no prior Go knowledge and experience and cover everything in-depth so that you can walk away from this course as a competent and confident Go developer.

My goal for this course is to give you the learning resource that I personally would have liked when I was first starting out with the Go programming language. I want to go beyond the basic syntax and provide you with that little bit extra so that you can get up to speed quickly and impress your colleagues.

Now, throughout this course, we are going to be covering a lot. We’ll be starting with setting up our development environment. We’ll then move on to creating small applications that will cover individual blocks of the language, such as control flow, functions, and methods. Then we’ll start increasing the complexity of the topics covered as we progress.

Now, by the end of this course, you should have the knowledge necessary to start tackling some more advanced challenges and projects.

I’m going to be sprinkling in a few quizzes and challenges here and there to help you solidify your knowledge and provide additional reading resources.

If you want to dig a little deeper for premium TutorialEdge clan members, we also have the discord server where you can jump on and ask any questions around the goal programming language, and I’ll be happy enough to provide you with additional support!

So with all that said, I hope you enjoy the course.
