Go Programming Training - Onsite, Instructor-led

Go Lang

This Go Programming Course teaches the basics of the GoLang with a focus on successful production deployments.

Go is easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software with a minimalistic syntax. Go was designed to be a modern language that utilizes modern hardware. It has constructs to use multiple cores. Concurrency is built-in. Go is the system language of the modern age with support for networked and multicore computing built-in.

“Go was born out of frustration with existing languages and environments for systems programming. Programming had become too difficult and the choice of languages was partly to blame. One had to choose either efficient compilation, efficient execution, or ease of programming; all three were not available in the same mainstream language. Programmers who could were choosing ease over safety and efficiency by moving to dynamically typed languages such as Python and JavaScript rather than C++ or, to a lesser extent, Java.”

Go combines the ease of programming of a dynamically typed language with the runtime speed and compile checks of a statically typed, compiled language. Go compiles quickly. Go provides an expressive, lightweight type system; concurrency and garbage collection; and rigid dependency specification. Golang was written to be compiled quickly and has an extensible interface system.

Go is the most important and popular modern system programming language.

Why choose us and our GoLang Course

We write software in GoLang that runs our products.

Our GoLang course is taught by real-world AWS consultants who implement microservices and tools for the AWS environment.


”(The instructor) taught an onsite course at our office…. I highly recommend (the instructor). The training was thorough and the examples were non-trivial. … He was ready with answers to the most detailed of questions.” –Jack

“He’s an engaging instructor who is genuinely interested in his client’s results. He did a great job customizing our course content to meet our exact needs. A few months earlier we had another vendor teach a similar course without nearly the same positive results. “ –John

”(The instructor) knowledge of … technologies is both deep and wide. His training and mentoring skills are the best that I’ve come across. His passion and proficiency has been inspiring for me and many others in the development community.” –Tom

(The instructor) delivered what was hands-down the best technical training I’ve ever received. He also played a key role on a large project, and it was always a great pleasure to work with him. –Aaron

Being a consultant as well as an teacher, he speaks from experience and possesses a deep knowledge of his subject areas. Highly recommended. –Thomas
