Course Introduction

Web Development using Go is a curated e-learning course consisting of a channel of online videos, guided challenges and a demo driven mini-project. Designed to be totally self-directed and with detailed walk-throughs and guides, it allows participants to learn at their own pace, anytime and anywhere.

Powered by the Pluralsight and aided by IRIS, Pluralsight's AI, participants will get to download and run sample or starter codes, and complete coding tasks on their local computer. At each stage of learning, an adaptive assessment measures a participant's proficiency to progress. With this adaptive learning and adaptive assessment features, participants may thus be directed to pick up other learning content tailored to bridge any possible gaps in their proficiency level before moving back to the original learning channel, thus personalising the learning experience. Another key feature in the learning is the built-in mini project which further enhances application of concepts.

With 8 weeks of access, participants can also access 7000+ other content within Pluralsight to add value to their learning, as well as assess other technical skills via different Skill IQs to discover their proficiency level.

Course Objectives

Participants will learn Go's syntax, core elements and control structures as they step through the development and deployment of a sample web application.
