Go for PHP Developers

Learning Go using PHP

About the Book

This book is a guide for PHP developers who want to learn Go.

It is written in a way that compares and contrast the language features to allow the reader quickly map PHP concepts to Go.

The book also covers other features of Go that PHP does not natively support such as concurrency.

The book is broken down into chapters in a way that allows the reader treat it as a reference material.

Go for PHP developers covers everything from installation to testing, and will continue to be updated as new language features come out for both languages.
