Why should you learn Golang?

Learn Go Mastery Online Course

Go, also commonly referred to as Golang, is an open-source programming language used by thousands of companies to deliver fast, efficient, and reliable software.

Open-source projects like Kubernetes and Hugo are written in Go, and as a result, the market for Go developers is booming. Cloud microservices, networking tools, command-line interfaces, and DevOps tools are just some of the real-world applications being written in Go by major tech organizations.

Stack Overflow’s 2020 report found Go is:

$140,000 average salary — 2nd highest paid language (in the USA)

Growing in popularity — and 3rd top language coders are looking to learn

Loved by coders — 5th most loved language, up from 10th the previous year

We love Go because it is:

Simple & quick to learn — Go is intuitive, clean and easy to read, and has a small syntax

Concurrent — Easy to do multiple things at once with Go without running into bugs or slowing you down

Very attractive to employers — Google and many other large companies are hiring Go developers

Still not sold on Go? Check out all 7 reasons why you should learn Go this year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Interested in upgrading to get full access to our Go courses, but unsure what that entails?

What’s the difference between Basic and Pro?

A Basic account is, well, basic. You can demo Pro features on the first 6 exercises of each course (such as our Go online courses). But after that, if you’re on a Basic plan, you’ll only be able to read the course material and play in the code sandbox. You won’t get access to feedback on your code know if you got the right answers.

Qvault Pro has everything in Basic, plus all the advanced tools, content, solutions, and certifications that you need to make your learning faster.

A Pro account lets you practice much more efficiently by getting instant verification of all your code solutions. If you get stuck, you can use the “cheat” feature to take a look at the solution and quickly see what’s holding you up.

Additionally, one of the biggest benefits our Pro subscribers get is access to free certificates of completion when they finish a course. Showing off your work to employers is a quick way to get that high-paying tech job

For a full list of the differences between Pro and Basic, view our Pricing page.

Do you offer any discounts?

Our top priority is improving the courses, the app, and your experience — so your feedback is super valuable to us.

If you’re happy to help us keep improving our courses to be the best they can be, we’re currently offering a 25% discount to anyone who completes this feedback form. When you’re finished with the survey you’ll be given a coupon code!

Do I need to know how to code in Go before signing up?

Most students with minimal coding experience take our Go course without too much issue.

If you’re a complete beginner to coding, you may want to take our Basic Intro to Coding with JavaScript course first, and you get access to all our courses with a Pro subscription.

Why should I upgrade to Qvault Pro?

I built Qvault based on the lessons I’ve been learning as a technical hiring manager, so everything we do here is designed to lead you to a high-paying Go programming job. If you’re ready to accelerate your Golang learning and apply your Go skills to real-world scenarios, then Qvault Pro is for you.

Aside from the direct benefits, if you like what we’re building here at Qvault, your support helps us improve the platform.

How easy is it to cancel my subscription if I don’t like it?

We do our best to be transparent about pricing, and never want anyone keeping a subscription they don’t use. You can cancel your subscription any time from your settings page and you won’t be billed again.
