    This book claims to be aimed at people who know how to program but do not yet know Go Despite this, it goes into a lot of detail on things that working programmers can understand at a glance.Where the book really shone was when describing Go s concurrency model, which is what the language is known for I wishpages would have been devoted to concurrency and fewer to theelementary parts of Go that are really just different syntax.

    I always thought of myself as of a quick learner, therefore I prefer to practice and hone my skill rather than reading long and lenghty books But this book is an exception It s not long, it s not boring But after reading it, I felt unsatisfied as the code examples were far from what s needed in the real life, some parts of the language are shallowly described and the whole impression of the language it gives is that Go is very close to Javascript and you can easily learn it over the weekend I always thought of myself as of a quick learner, therefore I prefer to practice and hone my skill rather than reading long and lenghty books But this book is an exception It s not long, it s not boring But after reading it, I felt unsatisfied as the code examples were far from what s needed in the real life, some parts of the language are shallowly described and the whole impression of the language it gives is that Go is very close to Javascript and you can easily learn it over the weekend Unfortunately, that s not the case with Go I ll give a try to Go in Practice from the same publisher in a hope that it will not leave me with lots of unanswered questions as this book did My score is 2 5

    Good for starters of golang language Detail explaining about some concept like build in type, channel, writer, reader,

    A great book to get your hands in Golang very quickly I liked how it s approaching different concepts and the very simple explanation method.

    Weird book Not an in depth reference nor a tutorial for beginners In spite of its innocent name, Chapter 2, Go quick start is far from a simple Hello world tutorial and can be daunting if you ve never played with Go before Beginners beware, the author assumes you already have a working knowledge of programming concepts such pointers and semaphores.The 2 concurrency chapters are great, and the final chapter on testing, which includes mocking HTTP services, is a nice finishing touch The ch Weird book Not an in depth reference nor a tutorial for beginners In spite of its innocent name, Chapter 2, Go quick start is far from a simple Hello world tutorial and can be daunting if you ve never played with Go before Beginners beware, the author assumes you already have a working knowledge of programming concepts such pointers and semaphores.The 2 concurrency chapters are great, and the final chapter on testing, which includes mocking HTTP services, is a nice finishing touch The chapter on Go s standards library was weaker than I expected and I found the lack of a chapter about the excellent net http a glaring omission.What I liked most about this book is that it describes some non obvious quirks of Go, such as Arrays arguments are passed by value, not by reference Appending to a slice of a slice will modify modify the parent slice if the capacity of the child slice hasn t been reached range makes a copy of the iterated value on each loop cycle.Overall, 3.5 5 stars

    A great introduction to Go language In 250 pages, it covers almost all of the features of Go language in sufficient detail to start programming in Go using almost all of its features The book takes a no nonsense approach that is grounded in examples like most in Action books from Manning Each concept is illustrated with simple examples that help clearly discern different possibilities To get the most out of the book, the reader should have some programming experience preferably, in lang A great introduction to Go language In 250 pages, it covers almost all of the features of Go language in sufficient detail to start programming in Go using almost all of its features The book takes a no nonsense approach that is grounded in examples like most in Action books from Manning Each concept is illustrated with simple examples that help clearly discern different possibilities To get the most out of the book, the reader should have some programming experience preferably, in languages that support pointers and classes.I read this book right after reading The Way to Go So, this book was an easy and quick read Since this bookrecent, it coveredrecent version 1.5 of Go and kinda cemented and clarified some of the contents covered in Way to Go However, Way to Go was muchthorough and a bit broader in terms of possibilities with Go at 600 pages I guess one can pick up Way to Go or Go Programming Language I haven t read this yet fordetails about Go

    It s a decent enough book with a somewhat strange structure, but that structure works for the most part I ve followed Go from the beginning and I ve read a few Go books, but I can only think of one that s actually better The Go Programming Language by Donovan and Kernighan I d recommend that first, this one second And don t forget that the online documentation is already quite excellent.
