Below is a quick summary of all of the courses I have created. For more information, including course samples, please check out each individual course page.
Learn to build real, production-grade web applications from scratch using Go.
You won’t be building a trivial TODO app that barely touches the complexity of a real app, nor will you be using a framework that hides all the details. In this course we build and deploy a photo sharing application complete with users, authentication, image uploads, a database, and more. We even deploy to a production server and set up automatic HTTPS.

Learn how to test real, complex software using Go. The course is composed of two parts - the lessons that teach specific testing techniques, and the projects that show how the testing techniques can be applied to a real codebase. By the end of this course you will be prepared for testing pretty much any Go code you come across.

Gophercises is a great course for someone who has learned the basics of Go and wants to take their skills and knowledge to the next level. In this course we tackle ~20 coding exercises, each designed to teach you something new about Go. Topics range from parsing JSON to using concurrency, and a little bit of everything in between. Even experienced Gophers tell me they loved this course.
Oh and it is 100% FREE. I probably should have lead with that 😀

Algorithms with Go is a passion project of mine. I fell in love with algorithms and data structures while in college, and I found that I understood them significantly better when I was able to learn how to properly implement them in code and practice with some exercises. This course is meant to share the knowledge and passion that so many others at my university shared with me.
The long term plan for this course is to cover a wide variety of algorithms and data structures, but the current version only has a few. Within each algorithm or data structure we start by first discussing how it works using visuals like playing cards, then we look at how to implement the algorithm with Go code. Finally we dive into some practice problems to help verify we really understood everything.
This course is also 100% FREE, but as I mentioned it is fairly small and will gradually have new algorithms and data structures added over time.

Sign up for my mailing list and I'll send you a FREE sample from my course - Web Development with Go. The sample includes 19 screencasts and the first few chapters from the book.
You will also receive emails from me about Go coding techniques, upcoming courses (including FREE ones), and course discounts.
Jon Calhoun is a full stack web developer who also teaches about Go, web development, algorithms, and anything programming related. He also consults for other companies who have development needs. (If you need some development work done, get in touch!)
Jon is a co-founder of EasyPost, a shipping API that many fortune 500 companies use to power their shipping infrastructure, and prior to founding EasyPost he worked at google as a software engineer.
