How to learn Go?

Here are the common ways to start learning Go.

Books are great and go deep on many topics. But they're also long and each chapter describes an entire concept even if you won't use it right away. After you read a book, you might feel overwhelmed with the options.

Videos are popular and seem like an easy way to pick up any topic. They work if you have the time to watch long hours of content. And like books, it's a passive way to learn.

Reading the standard library is the classic advice you'll get in the community. It might be a good idea if you plan to create another language or standard library. You're probably not.

Free online articles and examples contain some hidden gems and lots of bad advice. You can learn a lot, but it's hard to tell one from the other.

All the above miss one key thing: practice. Over the years, we've found out that building real projects is the best way to learn programming.

Using our experience, we've designed a hands-on Go training.

Time is the only thing you can't buy

How much would you remember after watching a 100-hour-long video course? It's no use to dive deep into every detail before you start writing applications.

Hands-On

If you prefer to passively watch video lectures for hours, you are on the wrong website. This training is 100% hands-on. You will get your hands dirty with coding.

Practical Gopher
Gopher of success

Real-world examples

The best way to become productive in a technology is by solving real problems with it. Read and write applications you would build in your day job.

Why Go?


Why Go stays our favorite language?

Gopher with cup

Fast

Go is fast enough for low-level and high throughout applications.
Big projects compile quickly.

Easy to Deploy

Build a single binary containing all dependencies, ship to your server, and run.

Widely Adopted

Go is used across many industries and in popular open-source software, like Docker, Grafana, and Prometheus.

Lightweight

Go doesn't use a virtual machine. Startup times and memory usage are minimal.

Statically Typed

Using other languages won't feel the same after using Go's type system.

In Demand

According to the Stack Overflow Survey, Go is one of the best paid programming languages.

We wanted to design the best training possible for a specific group of developers.

This training is a perfect match if:

You already know one programming language.

You prefer to learn by doing.

You want to be productive within a few hours.

You want to learn real-life scenarios.

You like to work in your local environment.

You're ok paying to save your time.

You won't like it if:

You don't know any other programming language.

You're looking for a video course you can passively watch.

You want to learn advanced topics in depth, like memory management or performance improvements.


If you already know Go basics:

The content was really well put together, everything builds upon what we are learning along the way and the approach of the small projects where all the knowledge is tied up together works really well!

This was a really nice course - I'd say that's a 10/10 in terms of value for money. I'm eager to start the next course from Three Dots Labs as soon as it's available!

I love this course! I was planning to learn Go but I find it very difficult since there was no single source where I could learn about Project structure... Base concepts of Go... Conventions... Concurrency...

All this in a fun and easy way! I think I came to the right place and I would recommend this course to anyone who would like to learn Go! And improve their skills as a Dev.

Thank you guys!!

I managed to break the training into smaller sessions to get a good overview about Go during my holidays. The individual topics contain concise information about the language's specifics and can be used as a short and handy reference later on.

The integration into VS code is working great; all in all it's a no fuss, hands-on primer that gets you up to speed.

What is often missing when learning new things is interactivity along with easy explanations for complex technical terms.

This course has all the elements that made it an incredible course, it is interesting, challenging but above all incredibly educational.

This is one of the best programming courses online and Threedots way of teaching is awesome. The course is easy to setup and the exercises are ready to go!

I enjoyed this byte-sized, incrementally challenging, concise learning. This really helped me learn new programming language effectively and efficiently as a student.

Go In One Evening is an incredible way to quickly get a working knowledge of Go!

The training is interactive and follows some excellent teaching patterns (spaced repetition, interleaving, etc). Highly recommend.

What graduates like about the training

Real quotes from the feedback form we ask graduates to fill.

No videos to watch :) Everything you need to start programming Clear and short description Working in own preferred IDE The fact that I can use my own editor really good value for money clean and concise explanations outstanding experience I appreciated the hands on nature of the course Concise Minimum time max value theory well explained Discord support I LOVED the running projects. explanations and texts very well written training in my own env it's not a copy-paste guide, you need to think! how easy is to set up hands on coding Compact knowledge even if you know golang, it's not boring all the samples built the one project as real The projects were great, especially regarding http I like there's no need for go to be installed, great for beginners I like the small size of almost all lessons. Fantastic overall Exercise driven learning "real" examples with some common use-cases the way to use the cli and the page
