DESCRIPTION Google built the Go language from the ground up to simplify the challenges of modern application development.
Go is ideal for writing server-side components that route and process data and manage the event-driven nature of modern web applications.
Go's instantly-familiar syntax and structure make it easy to build application components from scratch, and a full-featured standard library, along with a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks provide an abundance of pre-built functionality so developers can be super-productive quickly. Go Web Programming shows how to build web applications in Go using modern design principles.
It provides numerous examples that introduce core concepts like processing requests and sending responses, template engines, and data persistence.
It also dives into more advanced topics, such as concurrency, web application testing, and deployment both to barebones servers and PaaS providers.
