My Course “Learn Programming in Go (golang): A Rich Guide for Beginners” is online. It is a comprehensive introduction to Google’s Go programming language (golang) for beginners & intermediate programmers.
Join me on an exciting journey as we experience coding with Google’s Go (golang) programming language. Together we will learn the basics of programming as well as the ins and outs of the Go programming language.
This course is intended as a comprehensive resource for learning programming basics an concepts in general and Google’s Go (golang) programming language in particular – a comprehensive experience.
Due to its large scope, the course is equally suitable for beginners and slightly more advanced developers and it is full of examples, quizzes, hands-on exercises, solutions to that practical exercises, and a tiny code repository — accessible via Github.
When you sign up for this course, you have lifetime access to the course. You can learn at your own pace and return to content at any time for deeper insights or to learn additional concepts when you are ready.
This course also comes with a 100% money back guarantee.
I think this is one of the most comprehensive courses in English for learning the Go programming language.
And if for some reason the course doesn’t work for you, you can get a full refund within the first 14 days*.

You can get great value from this course and, more importantly, you’ll have a great time learning one of the best programming languages ever – the Go programming language, the fastest growing programming language with the highest paid programmers in the US within the last years.
Go is an open-source programming language that makes it easy to develop simple, reliable, and efficient software.
Go was developed by computer science luminaries at one of the best, if not the best, software development companies ever – Google. The design and implementations are by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike and Ken Thompson.
Go is a very good choice for learning a programming language because it was developed by some of the same people who created the C programming language, Unix, and UTF-8 – some of the most influential contributions to computer science. With Go Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson created a modern programming language that can easily run on multiple processors in parallel, works smoothly in different environments, and makes it easy for programmers to write programs with a very streamlined and user-friendly syntax.
Why did Google develop a new programming language?
In Google’s words, “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;
Finally, working with Go is intended to be fast: it should take at most a few seconds to build a large executable on a single computer. To meet these goals required addressing a number of linguistic issues: an expressive but lightweight type system; concurrency and garbage collection; rigid dependency specification; and so on. These cannot be addressed well by libraries or tools; a new language was called for.”
In my humble opinion, Go is the best programming language you can learn today. I’ve worked with a few programming languages since I was introduced to programming through BASIC in the mid-80s, and Go is by far the best-designed language I’ve ever used.
Join learning one of the best programming languages ever designed. You will get knowledge, ideas, concepts, inspiration, quizzes, and code samples to learn to create software and applications yourself according to your needs.

What you’ll learn
- Syntax, notation, taxonomy and special “vocabulary” used by and for Go
- Basic concepts of programming in Go, such as control structures, control flow, loops, and conditional branching
- Characteristics and differences of Go to more “conservative” programming languages such as C, C++ and Java
- Handling of variables, types, functions (and their signatures), (variatic) parameters and passing arguments
- Variables & types (simple and composite), slices & pointers, structs, etc.
- Functions, Callbacks, Closures

- Channels (directional, bidirectional), Fan in, Fan out, the “Comma OK” Idiom, Context
- Error Detection, Error Handling
- Code Documentation in Go
- Benchmarks, Examples and Tests (BET)
- Basics package and dependency management with Go modules
- and much more to get a wide insight into the Go programming language and become a respectable programmer
Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?
- No previous programming experience is required to participate in this course. This course starts by teaching very basic skills and guides you step by step to become a programmer for Go.
- Knowledge from other programming languages such as C, C++ and Java is helpful but not mandatory.
- Linux knowledge, as well as familiarity with the shell (bash) and git/github for version management can also help.
- For in-depth study of the material from supplied sources, adequate knowledge of English should be brought along.
- Willingness to learn, do practices and a fair amount of curiosity to figure out how things work!
Who this course is for:
- This programming course is suitable for first-year students at the university level as well as for high school and collage students.
- Also ideal for beginners who want to learn programming in Go from scratch.
- Equally suitable for advanced programmers who want a thorough introduction to the Go programming language.
- This course is also for experienced programmers who want to fill gaps in their programming knowledge.

Hello dear student!
“Yes! We’re all individuals!”, said already the crowd of people with one voice in the classic movie “The Life of Brian”.
And it seems that we all have different learning habits too. Some learn in face-to-face classes in a group at school or during a lecture, some learn by reading a book, some need practice and some learn by try & error and others by example.
At Udemy, you learn mainly by watching videos and applying applying what you learn in simple practical tasks. For one person this may already be challenging, but for another it is trivial and banal.
To meet the different requirements I have attached to practically all lessons further or supplementary links to external sources, which should help you to either further illuminate or deepen the respective topics. All of them lead to free websites and deal with the topics in a way appropriate to the course.
I appreciate a good rating and a few words of feedback!
Thank you very much!
