The Ultimate Service is a class for any Go developer who wishes to learn how to build production ready and well tested web services in Go. This class provides an intensive, comprehensive and idiomatic view of building web services using community accepted idioms and practices.

The class goes beyond just the use of the http package and focuses on building CRUD based services with logging, observability and debugging. We believe this class is perfect for anyone wishing to build production ready, scalable, fast, and highly concurrent web services in Go.

Building Production Web Services in Go

  • Start/Stop
  • Logging/Configuration
  • Web Framework Design
  • Database Support
  • Testing Support with Docker
  • Metrics/Tracing

What a student is expected to learn:

Everyone is going to be mentally exhausted by the end of the day. We will be challenging every student to think about what they are doing and why. If you want to be a better Go developer, code reviewer, designer and architect, this is the class you want to take.
