The book then moves on to demonstrate how to deploy web apps to the cloud using the Google Cloud platform.

Web Development with Go provides:

  • Fundamentals for building real-world web apps in Go
  • Thorough coverage of prerequisites and practical code examples
  • Demo web apps for attaining a deeper understanding of web development
  • A reference REST API app which can be used to build scalable real-world backend services in Go
  • A thorough demonstration of deploying web apps to the Cloud using the Google Cloud platform
