Your Hands-On Guide to Go, the Revolutionary New Language Designed for Concurrency, Multicore Hardware, and Programmer Convenience

 

Today’s most exciting new programming language, Go, is designed from the ground up to help you easily leverage all the power of today’s multicore hardware. With this guide, pioneering Go programmer Mark Summerfield shows how to write code that takes full advantage of Go’s breakthrough features and idioms.

 

Both a tutorial and a language reference, Programming in Go brings together all the knowledge you need to evaluate Go, think in Go, and write high-performance software with Go. Summerfield presents multiple idiom comparisons showing exactly how Go improves upon older languages, calling special attention to Go’s key innovations. Along the way, he explains everything from the absolute basics through Go’s lock-free channel-based concurrency and its flexible and unusual duck-typing type-safe approach to object-orientation.

 

Throughout, Summerfield’s approach is thoroughly practical. Each chapter offers multiple live code examples designed to encourage experimentation and help you quickly develop mastery. Wherever possible, complete programs and packages are presented to provide realistic use cases, as well as exercises. Coverage includes

 

  • Quickly getting and installing Go, and building and running Go programs
  • Exploring Go’s syntax, features, and extensive standard library
  • Programming Boolean values, expressions, and numeric types
  • Creating, comparing, indexing, slicing, and formatting strings

Coding on the client is fun. I started on the Commodore 64 in seventh grade in the 1980s; later moved to DOS with dBASE, QuickBasic, and C++; and eventually began Windows programming using C++, Borland Delphi 1.0, PowerBuilder, Visual Basic 3-6, and .NET. I like the ozone smell of making my CPU work for a living. I...

An Introduction to LTE: LTE, LTE-Advanced, SAE and 4G Mobile Communications

An Introduction to LTE explains the technology used by 3GPP Long Term Evolution. The book covers the whole of LTE, both the techniques used for radio communication between the base station and the mobile phone, and the techniques used for signalling communication and data transport in the evolved packet core. It avoids unnecessary...

Beginning T-SQL 2012 (Beginning Apress)
I never thought I’d be writing a technical book. I have a MA in English Literature so I always pictured myself sitting in an oak paneled room surrounded by books and attentive students listening to me pontificating on the latest criticism of 19th Century novels. It didn’t take me long to realize though that path...

Pro JavaScript for Web Apps
Client-side web app development has always been the poor cousin to server-side coding. This started because browsers and the devices they run on have been less capable than enterprise-class servers. To provide any kind of serious web app functionality, the server had to do all of the heavy lifting for the browsers, which was pretty...

Beginning Database Design: From Novice to Professional (Beginning Apress)
Everyone keeps data. Big organizations spend millions to look after their payroll, customer, and transaction data. The penalties for getting it wrong are severe: businesses may collapse, shareholders and customers lose money, and for many organizations (airlines, health boards, energy companies), it is not exaggerating to say that...

The OS X Mountain Lion Pocket Guide (Peachpit Pocket Guide)
A lot has happened since Apple introduced OS X a decade ago (then called “Mac OS X”). What started as an incomplete replacement for an established operating system has become not only the backbone of today’s powerful Mac computers, but also the foundation for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV. At one...
