Hi everyone, my name is Michael Van Sickle and welcome to my course Creating Web Applications with Go

Since Go was first open sourced in 2009, it has 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, we are 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 using HTTPS an HTTP/2 and finally
  • How to test and profile web applications
By the end 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’ll join me on this journey to learn how to make web applications with the Creating Web Applications with Go course, at Pluralsight.
