Are you ready to tackle one of the most exciting and important features of the Go language?

 

According to the most recent developer surveys, Go(lang) is one of the world’s most desired and loved languages, and its developers are among the highest paid in the world. Go is also the top language that companies are planning to migrate to, meaning that your Go skills are likely future-proof for many years to come.

 

Concurrency is considered to be a very advanced topic within Golang, and some comprehensive Go courses do not address it at all. Yet we believe that with just a reasonable number of hours of effort, you can be on your way, comfortable with concurrency and ready to add asynchronous features to your next programming project.

 

This course is for ANYONE interested in concurrency, especially in the Go programming language. There are no strict prerequisites, but knowledge of computer programming principles and the Go language will be very helpful.

 

This relatively short course covers ALL the essentials of concurrency – theory, syntax, coding examples, and downloadable copies of all visual materials.

 

Specifically, we will cover:

 

  • Concurrency theory, terminology, trends, benefits, and challenges
  • Goroutines
  • Blocking code
  • Wait groups
  • Channels
  • IO bound vs CPU bound code with examples of each
  • Race conditions
  • Mutexes
  • Condition variables
  • Atomic variables
  • Concurrency patterns

 

This course is offered at an affordable price, saving you weeks or months of digging through YouTube videos or purchasing other courses just to get up and running with concurrency.
