This is an introductory event. The focus will be on learning programming fundamentals using Go.
This course aims to take those who are new to programming, and with the help of the Go programming language, help them get their first steps into this world.
In this course you'll learn about the building blocks of programs, write your first apps and at the end of it, be able to make your application "talk" with another application over the internet in order to display the information needed.
This is a BYOL event, please make sure to Bring Your Own Laptop with you for this workshop.
Don't worry if you haven't had Go installed on your laptop, the kick off event would be an Installfest where we can help you do that. The workshop then would take up three Saturdays in a row, where we will meet and learn coding principles using Golang, starting end of January at Notonthehighstreet (NOTHS) House.
