If you are reading this then you have just started your journey from newcomer to pro. No seriously, (web) programming in Go is so fun and easy that you won't even notice how much information you are learning along the way!
The first day of the workshop, we teach you the basics of programming using Go. If you're an absolute beginner, you will get a lot of value from learning how to think about programs and how to translate that thinking into Go syntax. We'll use the material at http://bit.ly/gobridge-boston-day1.
The second day, we leverage the skills we learned during day one and apply it to web programming using Go. We'll use the course content at https://gobridge.gitbooks.io/building-web-apps-with-go/content/en/index.html, courtesy of Jeremy Saenz. We'll also use a companion guide to the BWAG material, http://bit.ly/gobridge-boston-day2-companion. Anything we don't get through during Day 2, you'll have enough of the fundamentals necessary to complete on your own.
