Welcome Gophers! In this course, we’ll be covering absolutely everything you need in order to get up and running developing Production-ready REST APIs using Go.

Throughout this course, we’ll be looking at how you can build a Comment system for your own sites or projects. We’ll walk through everything from setting up your Go project, all the way through to implementing the API and the tests around the API, and then finally, we’ll finish up by docker-izing our Go app and deploying to Kubernetes.

I’ll be walking you through some of the best practices in terms of structuring your Go app so that it’s easily testable and maintainable. Once, we’ve got a solid foundation, we’ll then introduce a database in the form of Postgres and we’ll look at how we can use gorm in order to communicate to that database and perform migrations for us.

Throughout the course, we’ll be covering fundamental topics such as

• Project Initialization and Setup
• Implementing REST HTTP Endpoints with the Gorilla Mux router
• Working With PostgreSQL
• Containerization with Docker and docker-compose
• Continuous Deployment to Kubernetes
• Proper Structuring of your Go App
• Using GORM to talk to the Database
• Proper Testing Strategies
• Basic Authentication with Middleware
• Continuous Integration with GitHub Actions

By the end of this course, you should be comfortable building your own Go services from the ground up and ensuring that good engineering practices are being adhered to for these new services. You’ll have a solid foundation on how Go apps can be structured in such a way that they are extensible and easily tested. You’ll also have exposure to ORMs and interacting with the
