I'm going back to school

September 29, 2023

Watch me learn to build a web server in Go, courtesy of boot.dev.

I’m going back to school. And you’re invited along.

Specifically, I’m preparing to go through boot.dev’s online course, “Learn Web Servers”.

Boot.dev is building the smartest way to master backend development by tackling the hardest problem with e-learning: boredom. The platform uses tactics learned from modern game design to push ambitious students toward their goal: a career in backend development. Through hands-on lessons that balance theory with practice, and an active Discord community, students are prepared to tackle technical interviews and forge a successful programming career.

It offers courses in Python, a wee bit of JavaScript, and most important, obviously… Go!

If you’re new to Go or web servers, this will be an easy introduction to the concepts, and a chance to ask questions as you watch me make mistakes.

Save the link. And be sure to subscribe to the Boldly Go youtube channel and/or to my email list so you’re notified when I’m about to go live.

I hope to see you there!
