Take a deep dive into the Go Programming language. Why was Go created, and by who? How has it become such a popular choice in DevOps and Backend development?

After exploring the theory of Go, you get hands-on creating two projects. A command line tool to fetch data from a remote API and a JSON web service. Both with a fun twist.

For this hands-on workshop, we are excited to welcome Sam Hennessy, Go Technical Lead at abbeal.


  • Basic coding experience, for example, in Ruby or Javascript.
  • A laptop
  • Go 1.13+ installed:

macOS: Use homebrew
Windows: Official installer from
