Go Cookbook (Packt)
Monday, 04 September 2017

This book takes off where basic tutorials on the Go language leave off.  Author Aaron Torres shows how you can put into practice some of the more advanced concepts and libraries offered by the language while avoiding some of the common mistakes for new Go developers.


The book covers basic type and error handling. It explores applications that interact with users, such as websites, command-line tools, or via the file system. It demonstrates how to handle advanced topics such as parallelism, distributed systems, and performance tuning. Lastly, it finishes with reactive and serverless programming in Go.
