Talk: Go Workshop at HAW Hamburg: A Quick Recap

I recently wrapped up a Go workshop at HAW Hamburg. It was an incredible experience, and I’m here to share the highlights and resources.

Getting Started

We kicked things off by ensuring everyone could run Go code, regardless of their setup. Options included using the Go Playground online or the Go Docker Image for those not wanting to install anything.

The Journey Through Go

Basics First

We began with the basics like variables, loops, and functions. It was all about laying the groundwork with hands-on examples.

Advancing Forward

Next, we dived into more complex topics like pointers, slices, and maps. This session was key to understanding Go’s power.

Putting It All Together

In the final part, we built our first applications: a simple “Hello World”, a clock, and a basic HTTP server. We also covered testing and error handling.

Resources and More

I pointed participants to some great online resources:

Reflecting Back

The workshop was a success, filled with learning and coding. If you’re curious or want to revisit the content, check out my GitHub for all the materials.
