Building Distributed Applications with Go
This course will teach you to build the basic elements of a distributed application architecture from first principles, using only Go’s standard library.
What you'll learn
Many production-grade distributed systems are built using one of the Go community’s excellent distributed application frameworks. However, unless you have an understanding of the basic principles at work, these systems can be difficult to troubleshoot when things go wrong. In this course, Building Distributed Applications with Go, you’ll learn the basic elements of a distributed application architecture. First, you’ll explore the challenges associated with creating a distributed application. Next, you’ll discover how to create a basic service registry from scratch and use it to register and discover services with it. Finally, you’ll learn how to monitor all the services that make up the application to identify, isolate, and remove services that become unresponsive. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of distributed applications needed to build more efficient and maintainable multi-service applications.
