Book Description

Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. It is a statically typed language with syntax loosely derived from that of C, adding garbage collection, type safety, some dynamic-typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library.

Whether it's keeping your application secure, connecting to your database, enabling token-based authentication, or utilizing logic-less templates, this book has you covered.
