Build real-world, production-ready solutions by harnessing the powerful features of Go About This Book * An easy-to-follow guide that provides everything a developer needs to know to build end-to-end web applications in Go * Write interesting and clever, but simple code, and learn skills and techniques that are directly transferable to your own projects * A practical approach to utilize application scaffolding to design highly scalable programs that are deeply rooted in go routines and channels Who This Book Is For This book is intended for developers who are new to Go, but have previous experience of building web applications and APIs. What You Will Learn * Build a fully featured REST API to enable client-side single page apps * Utilize TLS to build reliable and secure sites * Learn to apply the nuances of the Go language to implement a wide range of start-up quality projects * Create websites and data services capable of massive scale using Go's net/http package, exploring RESTful patterns as well as low-latency WebSocket APIs * Interact with a variety of remote web services to consume capabilities ranging from authentication and authorization to a fully functioning thesaurus * Explore the core syntaxes and language features that enable concurrency in Go * Understand when and where to use concurrency to keep data consistent and applications non-blocking, responsive, and reliable * Utilize advanced concurrency patterns and best practices to stay low-level without compromising the simplicity of Go itself In Detail Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. It is a statically typed language with syntax loosely derived from that of C, adding garbage collection, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library. This course starts with a walkthrough of the topics most critical to anyone building a new web application. Whether it's keeping your application secure, connecting to your database, enabling token-based authentication, or utilizing logic-less templates, this course has you covered. Scale, performance, and high availability lie at the heart of the projects, and the lessons learned throughout this course will arm you with everything you need to build world-class solutions. It will also take you through the history of concurrency, how Go utilizes it, how Go differs from other languages, and the features and structures of Go's concurrency core. It will make you feel comfortable designing a safe, data-consistent, and high-performance concurrent application in Go. This course is an invaluable resource to help you understand Go's powerful features to build simple, reliable, secure, and efficient web applications. Style and approach This course is a step-by-step guide, which starts off with the basics of go programming to build web applications and will gradually move on to cover intermediate and advanced topics. You will be going through this smooth transition by building interesting projects along with the authors, discussing significant options, and decisions at each stage, while keeping the programs lean, uncluttered, and as simple as possible.
Build frontend-to-backend web applications using the best practices of a powerful, fast, and easy-to-deploy server language About This Book * Build a fully-featured REST API to enable client-side single page apps * Utilize TLS to build reliable and secure sites * A quick guide that provides everything a developer needs to know to build end-to-end web applications in Go Who This Book Is For This book is intended for experienced programmers with minimal-to-moderate exposure to the Go language. If you have some fundamentals down, but are looking for more detail when it comes to using Go for the web, this is the book for you. What You Will Learn * Create a listening web server * Route requests * Implement SSL/TLS * Use Go's logic-less templates * Implement caching for maximum performance * Use sessions and cookies * Utilize security best practices to keep users and data safe * Connect to data sources * Create a RESTful API In Detail Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. It is a statically typed language with syntax loosely derived from that of C, adding garbage collection, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library. Learning Go Web Development is a start-to-finish walkthrough of the topics most critical to anyone building a new web application. Whether it's keeping your application secure, connecting to your database, enabling token-based authentication, or utilizing logic-less templates, this book has you covered. You'll begin by learning about routing requests and implementing SSL. Moving on, you'll get to know about practices to keep users' data safe. By the end of the book, you will be able to build robust, secure, and fully-featured applications for the web. Style and approach This concise book demonstrates by doing. You'll build a component every step of the way and in the end, will have a blogging platform that can be used for personal experimentation and augmented to be used in production.
A practical approach covering everything you need to know to get up and running with Go, starting with the basics and imparting increasingly more detail as the examples and topics become more complicated. The book utilizes a casual, conversational style, rife with actual code and historical anecdotes for perspective, as well as usable and extensible example applications. This book is intended for systems developers and programmers with some experience in either Go and/or concurrent programming who wish to become fluent in building high-performance applications that scale by leveraging single-core, multicore, or distributed concurrency.
If you are a web programmer with experience in developing web services and have a rudimentary knowledge of using Go, then this is the book for you. Basic knowledge of Go as well as knowledge of relational databases and non-relational NoSQL datastores is assumed. Some basic concurrency knowledge is also required.
