The Go language, better known as Golang, is a programming language that’s gaining a lot of popularity lately. My friend Brayan Bautista showed me his interest in this language, which ignited my curiosity. As well-known innovative projects such as Docker or Kubernetes use this language, I felt it would be useful for developing my career in DevOps engineering. That’s one of the reasons why I use Hugo for this blog.
Today I finished the Go Programming by Example (Golang) course. Instructor Kam Hojati did a great job preparing the videos with lots of examples. In addition to teaching language usage through programming examples, he also shows implementations of some popular algorithms such as Fibonacci sequence calculation or how to search for repeated characters. The course ends with a final exercise that covers almost all the previous lessons. I felt the course as long and tedious, the previous one about Java had more fun, but I think it’s a worthwhile effort, and you learn a lot.
