Course Description

Microservices in Go teaches you how to handle advanced server side development in Go; it uses microservices to accomplish this, but is relevant to all server-side developers. This course is your one-stop guide to learn all about building cloud-native architectures in Go. We begin by introducing you to the cloud native stack and microservices, then move on to implementing a simple Go microservice. This includes implementing the REST API with Go's standard library. Finally, we look at the Containerization and Orchestration of Go micro services using Docker and Kubernetes by showing you how to deploy Kubernetes and scale deployment. Style and Approach. The course will follow a step by step approach where we will be focusing on implementing simple Go microservices and their containerization using Docker and Kubernetes. 

Target Audience

This course is for Go developers who want to build secure, resilient, robust, and scalable applications that are cloud native. Some knowledge of web services and web programming will be sufficient to get you through the course.
