For this reading club, we’ll be starting Google’s very own Effective Go, which is a foundational resource for Go developers to learn how to write clear and idiomatic Go code. Google maintains this guide to augment the Go language spec and their Tour of Go interactive tutorial. Effective Go is frequently cited as required reading for using and understanding Go. Nobody wants to be the person who never quite understood something like slices.

We’ll be tackling this documentation in four parts. First up: Introduction, Formatting, Commentary, Names, Semicolons, Control structures, and Functions. Effective Go is available alongside all of Go’s official documentation, free of charge.
