About the Course

Learn the basics of Go, an open source programming language originally developed by a team at Google and enhanced by many contributors from the open source community. This course is designed for individuals with previous programming experience using such languages as C, Python, or Java, and covers the fundamental elements of Go. Topics include data types, protocols, formats, and writing code that incorporates RFCs and JSON. Most importantly, you’ll have a chance to practice writing Go programs and receive feedback from your peers. Upon completing this course, you'll be able to implement simple Go programs, which will prepare you for subsequent study at a more advanced level....

Great intro. If you already know the basics, you probably don't need this course though. Not much of a deep dive, more of a "skim the surface" type course. Week 4 on IO was the most beneficial for me.

Very detailed, nice introduction to golang's basic concepts. Might need to google to find better ways to handle some requirements of the assignments, but overall a cool programming language to learn.

I think more hands on tasks could be introduced, and more code examples (at least as a supplementary reading?)

The target of the assignment is not accurate enough, suggest it could be defined as precise as possible.

Good intro to the topic. Still, there was a lot of room for interpretation in the course assignments.

It's better to have like this course on laptop. It will help students learn more with developing.

Si tienes nociones anteriores de programación no está mal, si es desde cero, ni te lo pienses.

Course could really use some grader to test tasks instead of cross-evaluation between students

Some code in this course doesn't work without any note, but in general this is quite good one.

The programming tasks should be automated because the peer reviewing could be very subjective

Excellent introductory course. Small syntax errors should be corrected in the slides.

Everthing is good enough but if this course shows more example that would be great.
