Basic knowledge of web services and web programming would be beneficial.


Ever wanted to build massive, scalable, and performance-oriented cloud native applications that don’t crush under the demands of today’s customers? Well, look no further.
Embark on a journey like never before with Packt’s latest offering, Go: Building Cloud Native Go Applications

“Cloud native” has been the term du jour for quite some time now. As the world slowly moves towards the cloud, which promises lesser downtime, and more speed and efficiency, websites and applications that take full advantage of the capabilities of the cloud are dominating the world like never before, fast replacing monolithic web applications.

This Learning Path takes you on a journey to building fast, scalable cloud-based applications using Go, specifically,  microservices in Go. We begin with learning about the basics of cloud-native applications. Then, we start learning about microservices, which form an integral part of applications that run on the cloud. We learn how to create simple microservices using the Go programming language. We then deploy our first application in the cloud using Kubernetes and Docker.  Later, we cover topics such as service discovery and microservice communication in detail. Along the way, we will also be working with and learning to use a plethora of useful tools such as Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, Kafka, and Consul.

By the end of this Learning Path, you would have become skilled in creating seamless cloud-first applications and services using Go.
