Learning a bit about... Go part 2

Last week I learnt the basics of Go. This week I wanted to do a tutorial to make something, but I really struggled with this - there aren't many Go tutorials out there (in comparison to Python, which I did two weeks ago).


I've done a tutorial to make an API in Python and Express, so why not Go too. I ended up doing one from Traversy Media. It was similar to the other two in terms of how it all works. But it used mux and that's where I was lost - although if I'd read the documentation perhaps that would have helped.

What's next?

I did like Go and wouldn't mind doing some more of it, but if I'm going to do anything on the backend I'd choose Node/Express since I already know JavaScript.

Brad compared some things in the tutorial to Python and PHP, so probably some PHP next week.
