Ultimate Go Programming LiveLessons, Second Edition, provides an intensive, comprehensive, and idiomatic view of the Go programming language. This course focuses on both the specification and implementation of the language, including topics ranging from language syntax, design, and guidelines to concurrency, testing, and profiling. This class is perfect for anyone who wants a jump-start in learning Go or wants a more thorough understanding of the language and its internals.

In this video training, Bill Kennedy starts by providing a deep and intensive dive into Go’s language syntax, idioms, implementation, and specification. Then Bill guides you through the essential things you need to know about designing software in Go. With that strong foundation, Bill then teaches the language mechanics behind Go’s concurrency primitives and covers all the things you need to know to design concurrent software. Finally, Bill covers the tooling Go provides for testing, tracing, and profiling your programs.
