A Comprehensive Guide to Go Programming on Linux: Recap and Further Learning Resources

Welcome back to our Go programming series! In our previous post, we covered how to integrate pgx into Gin and build a simple CRUD API for managing users in our PostgreSQL database. Now, let's wrap up this series by summarizing what we've learned and discussing some resources for further learning.


In this series, we covered the following topics:

  1. Setting up a Go coding environment on Linux
  2. Basic Go programming concepts, syntax, and unique features
  3. Go structs and methods
  4. Go concurrency using goroutines and channels
  5. Using the Gin web framework to build web applications in Go
  6. Gin routing and middleware
  7. Connecting to a PostgreSQL database using the pgx library
  8. Integrating pgx into Gin and building a simple CRUD API

These topics cover a wide range of Go programming concepts and provide a solid foundation for building scalable and efficient web applications in Go.
