Go has established itself as a popular language for systems programming, services, and tools, and more people are using Go for tasks that would traditionally have been solved using Python or Ruby. (Many system tools—container technologies like Docker and Kubernetes, for example—are developed in Go.) Go produces statically linked binaries across the major operating systems (Linux, Windows, and macOS) and platforms (x86, AMD, ARM, etc.) and comes with a powerful standard library providing you with everything you need, from networking to security to filesystem operations.
Michael Hausenblas teaches you Go from scratch and walks you through how to use it for system tasks such as batch file operations, container inspection, and access control automation.
