Learn the basics of Go, an open source programming language originally developed by a team at Google and enhanced by many contributors from the open source community. This course is designed for individuals with previous programming experience using such languages as C, Python, or Java, and covers the fundamental elements of Go. Topics include data types, protocols, formats, and writing code that incorporates RFCs and JSON. Most importantly, you’ll have a chance to practice writing Go programs and receive feedback from your peers. Upon completing this course, you’ll be able to implement simple Go programs, which will prepare you for subsequent study at a more advanced level.

    Exercise descriptions could be a bit more detailed. E.g. oftentimes, the task description did not exclude some edge cases that took quite some effort to implement, but in the peer review process these edge cases were usually not tested. Otherwise, great course!

    This is a solid overview of Golang. I would recommend doing this alongside personal projects or other books. The assignments don’t offer the complexity to really get into why one would use Go over any other language.

    Clearer assignments would have made some things more straight forward. Some more coding examples during the courses would have been appreciated, now there is a bit too much of powerpoint. Otherwise great course and structure!

    This course is the only talks and powerpoint slides, there is absolutely no code, monitor screen sharing, etc. The courses talk about fundamentals and computer science stories. The entire specialization focus is less than 50% on the Go language itself. No Go mod, No libraries, No coding… For instance, The professor is about to explain a new thing and suddenly remember forgot to mention something before so he jumps to the missing point and then jumps back to continue. HARD to follow up… The quizzes have many typos/duplicates. That makes you fail! Overall strongly I do NOT suggest to waste your money or time on this specialization on Coursera.

    Current version of Golang is 1.13. The section about project structure and workspace should be updated because now we can use Go module to manage source and packages.

    Love it! Not only is the subject really interesting, but Prof Harris is really good in teaching programming in a nonchalant way, almost like a good buddy sitting next to you at the coffee table, teaching you how to code. I definitely recommend this course!

    The material presented is beginner friendly. Concise and straight to the point. The issue with the course is that assignments are easy, in my opinion. And there is a somewhat big waiting time for the peer review process to finish. Also, discussion forums are filled with requests for reviews, instead of questions related to the corresponding topics.

    Course was very introductory on high level topics for a class that assumes you are an intermediate or higher programmer. Requirements for weekly assignments were confusing and left a lot of unanswered questions on how certain things should be handled. Peer based grading clogged the message board with “please grade my assignment” posts and unequal grading standards.
