Network Programming with Go: Learn to Code Secure and Reliable Network Services from Scratch
Shows you how to leverage the Go programming language's concurrency and rich standard library to write robust network programs. You'll learn how to write secure, network software in idiomatic Go using the language's latest features. In Network Programming with Go you'll learn how to leverage Go's concurrency and rich standard library to write robust network programs to create and handle network connections. You'll learn how to send binary data using TCP and UDP, craft custom web clients and servers, build secure network connections with TLS, serialize data and use gRPC, and gain insight into your applications with structured logging and metrics. The author also connects network applications with corresponding cloud offerings such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud and shows how to programmatically interact with these providers using their software development kits. Difficult concepts are explained with analogies, diagrams, and examples as you learn to solve common networking problems and write secure software. For professional developers and experienced Go programmers.
