The Go Programming Language is the authoritative resource for any programmer who wants to learn Go. It shows how to write clear and idiomatic Go to solve real-world problems. The book does not assume prior knowledge of Go nor experience with any specific language, so you’ll find it accessible whether you’re most comfortable with JavaScript, Ruby, Python, Java, or C++. The first chapter is a tutorial on the basic concepts of Go, introduced through programs for file I/O and text processing, simple graphics, and web clients and servers. Early chapters cover the structural elements of Go programs: syntax, control flow, data types, and the organization of a program into packages, files, and functions. The examples illustrate many packages from the standard library and show how to create new ones of your own. Later chapters explain the package mechanism in more detail, and how to build, test, and maintain projects using the go tool. The chapters on methods and interfaces introduce Go’s unconventional approach to object-oriented programming, in which methods can be declared on any type and interfaces are implicitly satisfied. They explain the key principles of encapsulation, composition, and substitutability using realistic examples. Two chapters on concurrency present in-depth approaches to this increasingly important topic. The first, which covers the basic mechanisms of goroutines and channels, illustrates the style known as communicating sequential processes for which Go is renowned. The second covers more traditional aspects of concurrency with shared variables. These chapters provide a solid foundation for programmers encountering concurrency for the first time. The final two chapters explore lower-level features of Go. One covers the art of metaprogramming using reflection. The other shows how to use the unsafe package to step outside the type system for special situations, and how to use the cgo tool to create Go bindings for C libraries. The book features hundreds of interesting and practical examples of well-written Go code that cover the whole language, its most important packages, and a wide range of applications. Each chapter has exercises to test your understanding and explore extensions and alternatives. Source code is freely available for download from http://gopl.io/ and may be conveniently fetched, built, and installed using the go get command.

Exploring the major features and packages of Go, along with its types and data-structures, enabling the reader to write threadsafe, concurrent cloud, and network applications Key Features Not your typical introduction to the Golang programming language Exploring Golang cradle to grave, completes the developer’s Golang education A thorough exploration into the core libraries and Golang features, that usually are taken for granted In depth explanation, detailing the rationale behind composite data types, Golang concurrency, and the Golang networking library Book Description The Go programming language, often referred to as Golang (albeit wrongly), is really making strides, with some masterclass developments, architected by the greatest programming minds. Tobias Lutke, CEO of Shopify, recently quoted as saying “Go will be the server language of the future”, powerful words, with much ambition. Go programmers are in high demand, but more controversially, Go takes the stage, where C and Unix programmers previously led the way. The growth of the Go language has seen it become the means by which systems, networking, web, and cloud applications are implemented. Comfortable with syntax, you’ll benefit by mastering the use of the libraries and utilise its features, speed, and efficiency, for which the Go ecology is justly famous. You already know a little Go syntax and you’ve written some small projects, most Go programmers face the difficulty of having to integrate their Golang skills with production code. Typical introductions to Go programming, often stop short of this transition, the author continue on, showing you just how to tackle this. Offering a compendium of Go, the book begins with an account of how Go has been implemented, also, the reader will benefit from a dedicated chapter, an in-depth account of concurrency, systems and network programming, imperative for modern-day native cloud development. What you will learn Understand the design choices of Golang syntax Know enough Go internals to be able to optimize Golang code Appreciate concurrency models available in Golang Understand the interplay of systems and networking code Write server-level code that plays well in all environments Understand the context and appropriate use of Go data types and data structures Who this book is for This book is for Golang programmers. You should have previously read an introductory book on Go, or to have worked through the Tour of Go or an equivalent online course. This book will definitely help to remember the basic concepts of concurrency, but network programming will be explained. A certain amount of previous coding and production experience would be helpful.

Network programmers from beginners to advanced practitioners. C and C++ programmers interested in different approaches to concurrency and Linux systems programming. What You Will Learn Explore the Go language from the standpoint of a developer conversant with Unix, Linux, and so on Understand Goroutines, the lightweight threads used for systems and concurrent applications Learn how to translate Unix and Linux systems code in C to Golang code How to write fast and lightweight server code Dive into concurrency with Go Write low-level networking code In Detail Go is the new systems programming language for Linux and Unix systems. It is also the language in which some of the most prominent cloud-level systems have been written, such as Docker. Where C programmers used to rule, Go programmers are in demand to write highly optimized systems programming code. Created by some of the original designers of C and Unix, Go expands the systems programmers toolkit and adds a mature, clear programming language. Traditional system applications become easier to write since pointers are not relevant and garbage collection has taken away the most problematic area for low-level systems code: memory management. This book opens up the world of high-performance Unix system applications to the beginning Go programmer. It does not get stuck on single systems or even system types, but tries to expand the original teachings from Unix system level programming to all types of servers, the cloud, and the web. Style and approach This is the first book to introduce Linux and Unix systems programming in Go, a field for which Go has actually been developed in the first place.

Bridge the gap between basic understanding of Go and use of its advanced features About This Book Discover a number of recipes and approaches to develop modern back-end applications Put to use the best practices to combine the recipes for sophisticated parallel tools This book is based on Go 1.8, which is the latest version Who This Book Is For This book is for web developers, programmers, and enterprise developers. Basic knowledge of the Go language is assumed. Experience with back-end application development is not necessary, but may help understand the motivation behind some of the recipes. What You Will Learn Test your application using advanced testing methodologies Develop an awareness of application structures, interface design, and tooling Create strategies for third-party packages, dependencies, and vendoring Get to know tricks on treating data such as collections Handle errors and cleanly pass them along to calling functions Wrap dependencies in interfaces for ease of portability and testing Explore reactive programming design patterns in Go In Detail Go (a.k.a. Golang) is a statically-typed programming language first developed at Google. It is derived from C with additional features such as garbage collection, type safety, dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types, and a large standard library. This book takes off where basic tutorials on the language leave off. You can immediately 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. Style and approach This guide is a handy reference for developers to quickly look up Go development patterns. It is a companion to other resources and a reference that will be useful long after reading it through the first time. Each recipe includes working, simple, and tested code that can be used as a reference or foundation for your own applications.

Many of the normal concerns faced by application developers are amplified by the challenges of web-scale concurrency, real-time performance expectations, multi-core support, and efficiently consuming services without constantly managing I/O blocks. Although it's possible to solve most of these issues with existing languages and frameworks, Go is designed to handle them right out of the box, making for a more natural and productive coding experience. Developed at Google for its own internal use, Go now powers dozens of nimble startups, along with name brands like Canonical, Heroku, SoundCloud, and Mozilla, who rely on highly performant services for their infrastructure. Go in Action introduces the unique features and concepts of the Go language, guiding readers from inquisitive developers to Go gurus. It provides hands-on experience with writing real-world applications including web sites and network servers, as well as techniques to manipulate and convert data at incredibly high speeds. It also goes in-depth with the language and explains the tricks and secrets that the Go masters are using to make their applications perform. For example, it looks at Go's powerful reflection libraries and uses real-world examples of integration with C code. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
