Welcome Gophers! First off, lots of ❤️ from me to you. I hope you enjoy the screencasts, and as always, keep on rockin!

This repository has code and outlines for Go In 5 Minutes Screencasts. All content (code samples, outlines, etc...) is organized into folders, starting with episode0 and going from there.

Request A Screencast

If you've been interested in a Go package, best practice, or topic, I've probably had some experience with it, so I'd like to hear from you. Especially if you'd like to see a screencast on it!

Please submit an issue with a short description on the package/best practice/etc... that you've been thinking of.

Here are some example issues:

I'd love to hear from you!


Go in 5 Minutes has some folks who generously provide financial backing to help pay for development costs. See for the list of those folks.

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
You can’t perform that action at this time.
