Introduction to Programming with Golang

Learn programming, data structures and algorithms using the Go programming language

About the Book

This book is first about programming, algorithms and data structures. Of course, Go will be our reference language, and for sure, you will learn Go along the way. But the techniques presented in this book will also be transferable to a large extent to other programming languages like Python, Java or C.

We will take the time to understand what is going on under the hood. A tutorial will usually give you a recipe to solve a specific problem, without necessarily discuss the underlying algorithm. For instance, you can be given instructions on how to sort a list using a library or a built-in function, but it will probably not discuss how sorting a list actually works.

The book covers the equivalent of one semester or more of first year computer science class. It is designed for beginners who want to acquire a good grasp on algorithms and data structures. Teachers on the other hand can use it as a classroom support and leverage its numerous exercises, while focusing on teaching the material.
