Details

This workshop is run by Documize (http://www.dotgo.io/partner/documize), silver partner of dotGo 2014 (http://dotgo.io/).

Jeremy Saenz (http://twitter.com/codegangsta) (dotGo speaker) will teach attendees the basics of web development using the Go standard library and other auxiliary tools and packages.

During the workshop, attendees will build and deploy their own web app with Go on Heroku. Major concepts like HTTP routing, HTML templates, JSON rendering, and database access will be covered along the way.

Most importantly, attendees will learn how to approach Go web development in an idiomatic way, making them an even better Gopher!
