Concurrency In Go (O'Reilly)
Thursday, 31 August 2017

The Go open source programming language has facilities to make working with concurrency easier than you might expect. If you're a developer familiar with Go, this practical book demonstrates best practices and patterns to help you incorporate concurrency into your systems. Author Katherine Cox-Buday takes you step-by-step through the process.


Subtitled 'Tools and Techniques for Developers', the book covers how Go chooses to model concurrency, what issues arise from this model, and how you can compose primitives within this model to solve problems.
