Build, Test and Run Instructions

All the folders that start with episode (such as episode0) contain the outline and code samples for that episode, and all code samples can be built and run.

Unless otherwise specified in the in the episode folder, the commands for building, testing and running simply use the go tool. All episodes are buildable and testable, but some don't have a package main because they're libraries, so they won't be runnable.

  • build: go build
  • test: go test
  • run: go build -o example && ./example
