Learn Go in one evening

Overwhelmed with multiple ways to learn Go? Bored by long courses with abstract examples?

With our training, you'll be a productive Go developer by tomorrow.

All by implementing real-life projects in your terminal and editor.

Learning Go should be
easy and fun

New joiners with no Go experience deployed changes to production on their first day in teams we've been leading.

Go makes it possible because it's a powerful yet simple language. But it's hard to learn it quickly without real-life examples.

Over the years, we've found out that building real projects is a better way to learn than reading books, watching courses or writing trivial examples.

Following our experience in learning and teaching, we've designed a practical Go training. In one evening, it will kick-start you in writing Go applications.

Laptop

Get fast feedback using your favorite editor and a terminal

Many courses feature a web editor you can use to solve exercises. We don't do that.

Using a web IDE skips the initial burden of installing tools. But it's not what you'll be using writing your applications. After finishing our training, you will use the same setup to build real projects.

You will work using your favorite code editor and a terminal. You don't need to worry about downloading snippets and running exercises. Our CLI takes care of it. You can just focus on learning.

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've been coding together for more than 13 years. In 2016, we fell in love with simplicity and pragmatism of Go. In our daily work we're building complex financial and healthcare solutions in Go.

You may know us from the Three Dots Labs blog, the Watermill library, or our e‑book: Go With The Domain: Building Modern Business Software in Go".

When we meet in our free time, we like to cook and eat some steaks and burgers.

Is that training for you?


Our goal wasn't to create a mediocre training for everyone.
We wanted to design the best training possible for a specific group of developers.

This training is for you if:

You already know programming basics.

You prefer a practical approach to learning.

You want to become productive quickly.

You want to learn real-life scenarios.

You like to work in your local environment.

You know the value of your time.

This training is not for you if:

You don't know any other programming language.
You need a basic programming knowledge (e.g., you know what functions and variables are).

You're looking for a video course you can passively watch. This is a 100% hands-on training.

You want to learn advanced topics in depth, like memory management or performance improvements.
It's not what most developers need, especially when starting out.

Is this training not for you? Share it with your friends looking to learn Go!

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.

We would really like to do that, but it's just not possible as long as there are 24 hours in a day.

Instead, we provide support in a private Discord channel. You'll receive access to private channels after joining the training.
