Practical Go Concurrency

About this Event

This bootcamp is for backend developers looking for a step by step introduction to concurrency in the Go programming language.

Course Outline:

Learn about Go’s concurrency primitives and learn to use them effectively. The course starts with the preferred goroutines and channels by writing the worst sorting algorithm ever. Then move to timeouts and cancellation using the “select” statements and context.Context. Finally, we’ll look at the lower level primitives in the “sync” and “sync/atomic” packages. Throughout the class I’ll make many mistakes that will teach you what not to do.


  • Goroutines & channels
  • The “select” statement
  • Timeouts & cancellations with “context.Context”
  • The “sync” and “sync/atomic” packages
  • Common pitfalls

Important: Upon completion of each session, there will be a video recording available for download for a period of 48 hours.
