The Benefits You Will Gain From This Course Are Endless!

Our goal for you in this course is: For you to become a beginner Ninja in one of the hottest new languages called "Google Go" and also known as Golang.  

Google go is taking the development world by storm, because of it's system level access and it's design which gives programmers the ability to create multi-core programs.  This is the first development language really developed for the type of mutli-core cpu computers that have been in the market for the last ten years.  Created by three genius developers are google - to solve deficiencies google was experiencing with conventional computer languages. 

This course is especially structured to solve a number of problems that introductions to programming languages suffer form.  In specific it solves the:

What to teach first problem: - Solved!

Often, ideas are so dependent on one another that it can be difficult to explain concepts that depend on one another.  We solve that problem, by giving high level overviews that give the big picture.   We also break things down into basic lectures on how something works - and will revisit them later to expand on the concepts.  In this way, we have a unique course that is approachable. 

The Goldilocks problem: - Solved! 

This course is accessible to those begging programming, but quick packed enough for those whom want to learn Go and "Get on with it"

In short - there's no faster and more effective way to make an outstanding foundation in Google Go (Golang) than this course!  

The I have only 10 minutes problem: - Solved! 

Our course is designed with accessible lectures, that are on average of 7 minutes (or under) in length. Each lecture builds on itself, so you can consume a lecture - and keep on going with your life.. and come back to Google Go whenever you need to.  

In our 42+ Lectures, You Will Learn:

An Introduction to Golang:

  • What is Google Go (Golang).  Why does it exist? 
  • What makes Google Go (Golang) an amazing language to learn.
  • Whom this course is for, and how to get the most out of it.

How to get started with Golang:

  • How to create your first google go program in 30 seconds (or less!) [Yes, really!]
  • A resource kit (Emergency Go Parachute) of 5 resources, that will aid you on your journey so you can get unstuck if you experience trouble - and more importantly, how to never get stuck on learning Google Go in the first place. [Downloadable resource included!]
  • How to install GIT and Go Google Go on your workstation.  
  • How to create and compile your first Google Go program.
  • How to use a the Intellij Idea IDE (Integrated Development Environment) - to edit, compile and run your Google Go programs.  This tool makes it much easier, and faster to write beautiful Google Go (Golang) code.

Fundamental Golang:

  • Learn the basics of programming and what really happens - unlocking the mystery behind the scenes in an accessible way that even existing programmers should watch.  The four part lecture series on programming will turn you from a "zero" to a "hero" when it comes to actually understanding how programming works, what high level languages bring to the table and what you can accomplish using Google Go (Golang)
  • Learn how Google Go (Golang) uses variables, it's fundamental datatypes, and how to compile and write Google Go (Golang) expressions.

Intermediate Beginners Golang:

  • How to write Loops in Google Go (Golang), from begging format all the way to advanced loops that include ranges or simple statements. (And yes, simple statements are an advanced topic).  
  • How to write control structures, including basic if statements, advanced if statements and switches.  Our switch example especially will show a real world example of how to use the fall through keyword which can be a tricky concept for beginners and experienced programmers alike. Switch in Golang is not the same as in other languages!
  • How to write basic functions, and use them in real world examples.  Learn how Google Go (Golang) passes data into and out of functions.  Here, the lectures from Fundamental Golang really pay of in explaining the tricky concept of "by value" vs. "by reference" that often boggle experienced programmers.  
  • Understand Scope.  Learn all the rules of what variables are accessible where, and how Scope works in Google Go (Golang).

Advanced Beginners Golang:

  • Arrays and Slices in a four part lecture series!  You'll learn basic arrays and use them in a simple example.  Then we'll show why Slices are "awesome" above arrays, and how to effectively use slices.  Once you know and use slices, you'll almost never use arrays in Google Go (Golang) ever again.  But... because slices are based on arrays - it's super important to understand how they work!  
  • How to use simple statements, and how they are often used in writing robust code for error handling. 
  • How to write for range loops in Google go (Golang) to write very fast and efficient code that deals with slices.
  • How to write and use Variadic functions, which sound complicated - but with our amazing Ninja foundation, we make short work of the concept and fully implement a Variadic function in under seven minutes.
  • And finally, we complete our tour of Google Go (Golang) with next steps to move from being a Ninja Beginner to becoming a full Ninja master in Google Go.  [Downloadable resource included!]

Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction to Google Go (Golang)
02:10

What is this course all about?  Learn here!

01:03

An introduction to our course!

06:38

In this lecture, we'll dive into what you'll learn in this course and the structure of the course. We've included it in the free preview, so you can tell if this course is right for you!

05:24

If you're wondering if this course is right for you - look now further.  This lecture will explain whom this course is for.  We've included it in the free preview so you'll be able to tell - if this course is right for you!

08:29

So what is Google Go / Golang?  In this lecture, we explore that idea by first creating our first Google Go program in 30 seconds (or less).  Start your timers folks, because this example is real.  

After creating our first Google Golang program, we explore the facets of google go and how it started.  How it's system based, young and efficient.  How it's easy to learn, open source and portable... and how it has an amazing mascot!  

05:19

So why learn Google Go, also known as Golang?  Well this lecture will dive into why you want to learn Google Go (Golang).   This is exploding as a must have skill for 2017 and beyond.  Simply put - there's no better computer language to be learning now (than Google Go!)

03:49

Your success in this course is important to us!  But you also have to bring your "A game!".  In this lecture, we'll give you five tips on how to make the most use of this course to be really effective in your journey in becoming a beginner level ninja in Google Go (Golang).

Section 2: Getting Started with Google Go (Golang)
05:25

This lecture and it's downloadable PDF resource file - give you must have resources to aid you on your journey in mastering Google Go (Golang).  Don't skip this lecture, because even experienced programmers will benefit from the "cheat sheet" it references, as a guide for Golang syntax and keywords later on.  

04:06

In this lecture we'll download and setup the Google Go (Golang) compiler on our workstation. We'll finish by validating the setup and be ready to compile our programs.  

04:22

In this lecture, we'll complete our Google Go (Golang) setup by creating our "work-space".  Learn the three essential folders every Go Workspace needs, and complete setting up your Golang environment. 

04:06

Finally!  In this lecture we re-create the hello world example, that we did (in 30 seconds or less) earlier on in the previous section.  But... this time - on our workstation.  This is the moment where we create, edit and compile our first local Google Go (Golang) program. 

04:19

Editing our files in notepad, is going to get pretty dreary.  Real programmers use IDE's - also known as Integrated Development Environments.  

In this lecture we get ready to install our IDE of choice by installing GIT.  GIT is a version control software program, that integrates with software repositories around the world.  It's essential to be able to go "GIT" packages and modules for our journey in Golang. 

08:42

In this second lecture, we install the Community version of Intellij IDEA, an IDE we'll be using to edit our Golang programs.  This is a fully powered IDE, which we'll be configuring with the plugin for Go - which will give us tool tips and syntax highlighting.  The community version of IDEA is FREE! And it's multi-platform, so it's a perfect choice for our course - no matter if your developing on Windows, Linux or Mac OS.

A short one question quiz.  More questions to come soon!

Section 3: Fundamental Google Go (Golang)
06:18

In this first lecture of a four part series, we define the three fundamental parts of any computer system, and how binary works. And we'll even end the lecture with a joke you can stump all your non-technical friends with! 

04:45

In this second lecture of our four part series, we dive into Hexadecimal numbers.  Hexawhat?  Exactly.  

This lecture will make sense of Hexadecimal number systems that will be a foundation for understanding memory addresses and "passing by reference" vs. "Passing by Value" later on.  

06:40

In our third part of the of our four part series, we'll discuss the three essential parts to a computer as well as define what processing actually is.

07:17

In our fourth and final part of the lecture series on what is programming - we really tie everything together.  This is the best lecture in this entire course , Learn how high level computer languages give us an easier way to access the CPU and Memory - and what that really means.  

08:15

In this lecture, we dive into all the aspects of the Hello World program.  This lecture prevents the "chicken and the egg problem" that often plagues other introductory courses on Golang.  How do you make something make sense, when.... ideas and concepts depend on each other?

In going through this example, we'll give you a high level view of the program, and how all the ideas work together - to be prepared to dive into them later on.

07:23

In this first of a three part lecture on Variables, we'll define how variables are defined.  We'll cover of precision and the types of datatypes Google Go (Golang) supports.  We'll explain how variables actually work under the covers - and use memory.  

04:31

In this second part of the three part lecture on Variable and Constants we walk through declaring an using several different fundamental Golang datatypes including:

  • Boolean
  • Float
  • Integer
  • String
  • Complex (yes, not kidding!) 

We also highlight three things you must know about Google Go (Golang) and using variables!

04:51

In this third and final lecture on Variables and Constants we take a tour of three different ways variables can be created in Google Go (Golang).  We highlight which ways are better than others; and the difference between Declaration, Initialization, and Assignments.  

We finish this lecture by showing how constants are declared and used. 

09:19

In this lecture we explain expressions, which is often over looked from experienced programmers.  This lecture is super important and key to really understanding Google Go and Golang.  In it we'll discuss:

  • The Built-in Golang General Arithmetic Operators 
  • Basic Type Conversion (Important for like, everywhere!)
  • Boolean Expressions (Important for use in Conditionals) 
  • General Boolean Operators 
1 question

A short one question quiz.  More questions to come soon!

00:39

How has your experience been so far?

Section 4: Intermediate Beginners Google Go (Golang)
05:10

In this first lecture - on the series of loops - we see what it takes to make a New Years Eve Countdown... the hard way.  This hands on lecture will set us up for successfully implementing real loops - where we can count down from any number we want...  

07:20

In this final lecture in the series on loops, we revise our New Years Eve countdown timer, to use a loop.  The power of Golang loops finally exposed, we can smile and know - we can start our countdown from number that we want!  

07:12

In this first lecture on in Conditional Statements Golang, we introduce the basic If statement, and do a hands on example that separates the "young-ins" from those with more grey hair... and experience.  

05:09

We continue with our second lecture on Conditional Statements, by simplifying our code with the else if statement.  This lecture is hands on!  

05:55

We continue our journey on Conditional Statements, and conclude our discussion on IF, by introducing the else statement.  This lecture is hands on!  We recap with fundamental points, so you don't get stuck by Golang later on.  

08:57

In this first part of the lecture series on Switch - we create our hands on example, which includes everything and even a partridge in a pear tree!  This hands on example... will grow to illustrate the power of switch to simplify things - but also later on, set us up to really introduce how Golang is different than most other languages and it's most advanced switching features.... 

04:42

In this second part of the lecture series on Switch - we get hands on with switch and use it to simplify our code substantially from the previous lecture... but it doesn't stop here... 

06:24

In this third and final lecture on switch - we take our example to "mission possible!", by using the Fallthrough statement.  Generate the entire classic song, in a blink of an eye - and actually see where this statement might be useful.  This lecture brings to light one of the trickier concepts of Golang, in a powerful but succinct way.  And it's hands on! 

12:26

In our four part lecture series on Functions in google go, we'll begin with the theory of functions.  We'll introduce the concept "of the stack", and blast through it's trickiness of "by value" and "reference" by tapping into our "super brain".  This is a must see lecture, that covers off some really key stuff in Google Go (Golang). 

Also - be sure to check this out for the cool "playback" animation of a program running.  It really shows how this all works - under the covers.  Pure awesome!!!! And it makes this longer than average lecture - entirely worth while!

05:53

In this second lecture in the four part lecture series on functions - we create "the simplest function" that ever was. We are just warming up, as with this hands on lecture we'll be revising it to make it more sophisticated as we go on.... and continue our journey in Google Go (Golang). 

03:30

In this third lecture in the four part lecture series on functions - we extend "the simplest function" that ever was, to get data back to the function caller.  This builds upon expressions.  So if Golang is confusing you here - be sure to review that lecture.... 

08:42

It's our fourth and final lecture on basic functions... and all the training... all the work - it's *ALL* come down to this.  This is the moment, that grab that function and we pass data by reference.  This is the must see lecture that has built up to this amazing moment.  Don't be an average programmer, that's actually boggled by these concepts.  You can actually understand this!  

Unleash your Super Brain! 

08:34

We've talked about scope earlier a fair bit.  But it's always been one of those "chicken and an egg problems".  How do you talk about scope before you talk about ... well nearly everything else?  

With so much under your belts in mastering beginning go - it finally makes sense go go back and really define what scope is, how it works, and what it does.  And no... sorry - this isn't about the mouthwash.

Section 5: Advanced Beginners Google Go (Golang)
04:35

Now are are really playing with some seriously capable Google Go (Golang) concepts.  In this lecture (part of a four part series), we introduce the theory of arrays.  While Arrays are barely used on their own with Google Go, they are essential to understanding slices... which will be up - just around the corner.  

09:41

This second lecture is part of our four part lecture on arrays and slices.  We move beyond the theory of arrays and actually create a program that uses them.  We also hit up on some of the fundamental limitations of arrays, so we can see why slices are really important.  

08:53

Finally!  We arrived to the promised land, with our third lecture in the four part lecture series of Arrays and Slices in Google Go.  In this lecture we highlight the theory of slices, and why they are an amazing feature of golang.  With this information we'll be really to implement slices... in the very next lecture. 

04:20

In our fourth and final lecture of Arrays and Slices... we implement slices in less than five minutes flat.  Importantly, you'll see exactly how the features of Golang slices blow right past conventional arrays! 

05:04

In this advanced topic, we'll discuss simple statements and how they work with If and Switch statements.  We'll discuss the use case, for error handling. 

05:27

In this lecture, we dust off our for loop - and super charge it!  In this hands on lecture, we'll show the "for range" syntax and show how it can process slices - in the blink of an eye.  

06:54

Variadic Functions!  In this hands on lecture, we extend our example to include Variadic functions - which are blidnly simple an help write really clean, modular go code.  And you'll get a vocabulary word which will show your Ninja credibility, in Google Go / Golang circles everywhere.  Just name drop "Variadic"... and they'll know that you have graduated to someone whom actually knows how to write - Go Code.

1 question

A short one question quiz.  More questions to come soon!

06:22

Sadly.. the time has come where this course is done.  Your journey doesn't have to end here however, and this lecture (and it's accompanying downloadable resource) show exactly - how to continue your journey in Google Go.... 

Golang my friend... Golang....
