You know the basics of Go and are eager to put your knowledge to work. This book is just what you need to apply Go to real-world situations. You'll build a distributed service that's highly available, resilient, and scalable. Along the way you'll master the techniques, tools, and tricks that skilled Go programmers use every day to build quality applications. Level up your Go skills today. Take your Go skills to the next level by learning how to design, develop, and deploy a distributed service. Start from the bare essentials of storage handling, then work your way through networking a client and server, and finally to distributing server instances, deployment, and testing. All this will make coding in your day job or side projects easier, faster, and more fun. Lay out your applications and libraries to be modular and easy to maintain. Build networked, secure clients and servers with gRPC. Monitor your applications with metrics, logs, and traces to make them debuggable and reliable. Test and benchmark your applications to ensure they're correct and fast. Build your own distributed services with service discovery and consensus. Write CLIs to configure your applications. Deploy applications to the cloud with Kubernetes and manage them with your own Kubernetes Operator. Dive into writing Go and join the hundreds of thousands who are using it to build software for the real world. What You Need: Go 1.11 and Kubernetes 1.12.
This is the book for Gophers who want to learn how to build distributed systems.
