No absolute prerequisites, but some knowledge of the Go language helpful.
Familiarity with programming concepts very helpful.
(We will install together) Installation of the Go compiler and your favorite code editor or IDE.
Are you ready to tackle one of the most exciting and important features of the Go language?
According to the most recent developer surveys, Go(lang) is one of the world’s most desired and loved languages, and its developers are among the highest paid in the world. Go is also the top language that companies are planning to migrate to, meaning that your Go skills are likely future-proof for many years to come.
Concurrency is considered to be a very advanced topic within Golang, and some comprehensive Go courses do not address it at all. Yet we believe that with just a reasonable number of hours of effort, you can be on your way, comfortable with concurrency and ready to add asynchronous features to your next programming project.
This course is for ANYONE getting started with concurrency, especially in the Go programming language. There are no strict prerequisites, but knowledge of computer programming principles and specifically the Go language will be very helpful, especially for the coding exercises.
This relatively short course covers ALL the essentials of concurrency – theory, syntax, coding examples, and downloadable copies of all visual materials.
Specifically, we will cover:
- Concurrency theory, terminology, trends, benefits, and challenges
- The difference between concurrency and parallelism / parallel programming
- Blocking code
- Wait groups
- IO bound vs CPU bound code with examples of each
- Race conditions
- Condition variables
- Atomic variables
- Concurrency patterns
This course is offered at an affordable price, saving you weeks or months of digging through YouTube videos or purchasing other courses just to get up and running with concurrency.

From recent students:
“The instructor is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. His presentations are clear and concise. Will seek out more courses from this instructor.”
“Here’s one of those courses that are short and sweet while covering the exact content you came for. Stan Vangilder delivers valuable, practical teachings on turning synchronous processes into fast, concurrent processes. One thing I appreciated from this course was gaining an in-depth understanding of how Golang differs from other languages when it comes to native support for concurrency for both IO-bound and CPU-bound processes. Plus, ‘atomic variables’ are no longer just a cool sounding piece of code I will skip over and learn about one day. Thanks, Stan!”
“This exceptional course is exactly what I needed. Thank you so much Stan for explaining in such detailed manner and providing wonderful and easy to follow examples. I truly enjoyed this course and binged watched it like a Netflix show. I learned a lot. Really looking forward for your next courses with Go!”
“Awesome! the author has a nice tone of voice which makes easy to follow the topics. The examples used are excellent the understand the concepts, I highly recommend this course.”
“Sir, that was a wonderful course, 5 stars easily. Are you planning on making other courses with Go?”
“Great instructor! I look forward to more courses from him. Thanks”
“I finished the course in a few hours and left u my feedback there, it’s good content! Congratulations and let us know when u publish ur next course!”
