Since Go was first open sourced in 2009, it's rapidly grown in popularity, and is especially suited to creating web applications due to its focus on simplicity and rich standard library. In this course, Creating Web Applications with Go, you'll learn how to create web applications in Go with minimal third party library support. First, your journey will begin with an introduction to how to create simple HTTP request handlers, and an exploration of Go's powerful templating capabilities. Next, you'll discover how to create a controller layer with dynamic routing and middleware, and how to interact with a database. Finally, you'll learn how to test your applications to ensure they perform as expected. When you're finished with this course, you'll be fully equipped to create your own cutting edge web applications with the Go language.

Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Michael Van Sickle and welcome to my course, Creating Web Applications with Go. Since Go is first open sourced in 2009, it is rapidly growing in popularity and is especially suited to creating web applications due to its focus on simplicity and its rich standard library. In this course, we're going to learn how to use Go to create a full featured web application following the model, view controller design pattern. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, how to use Go's templating framework, how to create parametric route handlers for our controllers, how to communicate securely and efficiently with https and http2 and finally, how to test in profile web applications. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create applications that are fast and robust. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the Go language as well as foundational web technologies such as, HTML and CSS. From here, you should feel comfortable learning about some of the existing web frameworks for Go, with courses on Beego, Revel and Gin. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn how to make web applications with the Creating Web Applications with Go course at Pluralsight.
