Over 75+ recipes to program microservices, networking, database and APIs using Golang

About the Book

The Go Programming Cookbook ensures Go programmers may confidently and effectively navigate the complex software development landscape. Both newcomers to the world of Go programming and seasoned professionals looking to sharpen their skills will find something of interest in this carefully written book.

This cookbook covers a wide range of topics, from the basics of Go syntax and core ideas to more advanced subjects like concurrency, networking, and microservices design. Building a Go development environment, learning the fundamentals of Go constructs, and mastering the art of Go Module dependency management are all covered in the first few chapters, which prepare readers for what's to come. To guarantee that readers can construct strong and maintainable programs, the next sections cover error handling, unit testing, and database interfaces. The book really comes into its own when it comes to its in-depth examination of network programming; it covers topics like building HTTP clients, implementing FTP and SSH clients, and using WebSockets for real-time communication.

To prepare developers to create safe, networked applications in a world where everything is always connected, it teaches them how to establish secure TLS/SSL communications, which is a fundamental component of security. In addition to providing practical solutions, the recipes educate readers on the concurrency model and design principles of Go, which helps them build an intuitive understanding of high-performance software development.
