In Detail

Go is one of the most powerful, efficient, and highly performant programming languages. Go is not only a powerful tool that can be utilized on the server-side but one that can be utilized on the client-side as well. With the power of Go and GopherJS, we can create feature-rich, client-side applications that run directly inside the web browser.

In this video course, we will provide deep insight into front-end web development using Go. We start off by covering the fundamental mechanics of front-end web development such as performing common DOM operations, accessing native JavaScript functionality, making XHR calls, rendering templates on the client-side, transmitting Gob encoded data, and communicating over a WebSocket connection. We also show you how to make your Go programs interoperable with JavaScript and how to read and write to the web browser’s local storage. We then demonstrate how to create a Single Page Application by implementing client-side routing and directly rendering templates in the web browser itself. Utilizing the valuable knowledge presented in this course, you will be taught how to build GopherFace, a fully functioning Social Media website with incredible features.
