Original post

Learn about everything I covered so far in the last year.


In this article I’m going to cover what happened in 2017 and what will happen in 2018. And also, I’ve created a path for you to follow, so you can read my articles in order to digest them easily.

  • 100+ subscribers in 10 days to the newly created Learn Go public Slack channel (Join here)
  • I created dozens of visuals, animations and code exercises
  • I post hundreds of educational tweets
  • Some of my posts become Reddit and Hackernews top-posts and shared by many other publications
  • Many great people have reached and offered great opportunities for me (even joining to Google!)
  • Dozens of people have said to me that they learned Go through my work

👶 This Blog is Very Young

It’s just ~3 months old — I started doing it publicly since the last quarter of 2017. It has always been my goal to teach people what I know and I’m glad that I’m doing it now.

🤩 My Vision

My vision has always been to create the most concise, information-packed, visual and simple to digest articles that you can find in one place.

I’ve created this blog because the information about Go is dispersed in many places, so, you need to search for it in too many places. Also, many articles are too complex or just shallow or hard to understand for many beginners and even for intermediate-level gophers. I’m trying to reduce these problems.

❤️ 💜 💙 💚 💛

Allright! Now, I’m going to summarize most of the content I’ve created about Go last year. I’m very happy that I could be able to help people. Enjoy!
