Getting Started With Golang

I went to a Software Engineering Daily meetup a couple days ago and spoke with several CEOs whose companies are focused on data science and machine learning. I asked about what languages they are looking for in new hires. These conversations cemented my desire to learn Golang in conjunction with TensorFlow as my next major engineering paradigm.

“Hello, World!”

I started with a new Debian droplet at Digital Ocean (Referal Link) and followed this tutorial from Digital Ocean to set up the server with the latest version of Golang and print out my first “Hello, World.”

Next Steps

Golang’s site has a tutorial called Writing Web Applications which seems fairly comprehensive. I am going to work through this tutorial and then get started on the TensorFlow tutorials.
