About the Book
Starting from version 1.18, Go has supported custom generics.
This book talks about the custom generics feature of Go programming language. The content in this book includes:
- custom generic syntax
- type constraints and type parameters
- type arguments and type inference
- how to write valid custom generic code
- current implementation/design restrictions
A reader needs to be familiar with Go general programming to read this book. In particular, readers of this book should be familiar with Go type system, including Go built-in generics, which and Go custom generics are two different systems.
Currently, the book mainly focuses on the syntax of, and concepts in, custom generics. More practical examples will be provided when I get more experiences of using custom generics.
