What Will You Learn?
Encapsulate the creation of complex objects in an idiomatic way in Go
Learn most Go primitives and write concurrent apps
Develop some classical design patterns with concurrent structures to maximize parallelism
Understand the importance of object encapsulation to provide clarity and maintainability
Prepare cost-effective actions so that different parts of the program aren’t affected by expensive tasks
Deal with channels and GoRoutines within the Go context to build concurrent applications in Go in an idiomatic way
Go is a multi-paradigm programming language that has built-in facilities for creating concurrent applications. Design patterns allow developers to efficiently address common problems faced during developing applications.
The focus in this course is on learning about concurrent structures and parallel execution. You will use the majority of Go primitives to write concurrent apps, and we will develop some classical design patterns with concurrent structures to maximize parallelism. Also, you will learn some typical structures with which to develop concurrent apps in Go. You will learn how a classical pattern can become more complex if you need it to work in a concurrent way; however, the idea is to understand Go concurrent primitives so that you know how to write your own concurrent design patterns by using the knowledge taken from the course.

He works as a site reliability engineer, and now he is focused on containerized solutions and apps using most of the Google Cloud suite, especially Kubernetes. He has wide experience in systems and solutions integration, and he has written many scalable and reliable 12-factor apps using Go and Docker. He has designed big data architectures for financial services and media, and he has written data processing pipelines using event-driven architectures written purely in Go. He is also very active in the open source community, and you can find him on his GitHub account with the username sayden. In the past, he has also written mobile applications and backends in Java.
Mario is passionate about programming languages, and he found the best balance between fun and productivity in Go; however, recently, he enjoys writing in Rust and embedded systems in C. He is also passionate about road cycling and winter sports.
