Find out how Go makes web development fast and enjoyable by developing a full stack web project

Go for Web Development gets you started with web development in the language, opening with the classic "Hello world" through building an application with a strongly designed database backend, useful middleware, UI with an intelligent search function, multi-user authentication, and more.

We'll start off by building a web server with Go's extensive standard library. You'll learn the concepts of a single page web application and create a dynamic user interface using templates, manipulate a database, and use powerful encryption algorithms to implement an authentication system. We'll also start to incorporate more functionalities by calling out to external libraries from our database. When we've put everything together, we'll show you how package it all up and deploy it into the wild using Heroku.
