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.

In this video, we are going to be looking at goroutines in Go and what they are used for.


package main

import (

func HelloWorld(name string) {
	time.Sleep(1 * time.Second)
	fmt.Printf("hello: %s\n", name)

func main() {
	go HelloWorld("Elliot")
	fmt.Println("I should be printed first")
	time.Sleep(2 * time.Second)


$ go run main.go
I should be printed first
hello: Elliot
