Start with a Tour of Go, and solve all the challenges

Then just begin reading Effective Go and Go by Example

The above steps were inspired by Jeff Hodges

I found this overview very useful

I also spent some time reading through the docs

At this point, I'd recommend just building and breaking things, specifically:

  • Experimenting, breaking and deploying:
  • Make an endpoint to recieve a string, and return the sum of all the characters unicode code-points
  • Make a go connect to a containerised database

If the above sounds too intimidating, you can code along your first app here

I found it very useful to just read lots and lots of good go code, example code can be found at compose-cli or cli or just the go standard library

I also found it useful to read How to Write Go Code

And I also have heard lots of good things about learninggo
