Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Michael Van Sickle and welcome to my course, Gin: A Web Application Framework for Go. I'm a software engineer at SitePen. There are many web frameworks springing up in the Go community, and it can be hard to decide which one to choose. In this course we'll go over the major features of Gin, so that you can decide if it's the right choice for your team. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include, how to configure routing, how to work with requests, including how to validate incoming data, how to formulate responses to requests, and how to work with middleware. By the end of this course you'll know how to get started with Gin. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with both the Go language, as well as how web applications work. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Gin with this course at Pluralsight.
