Why should you learn Golang?
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

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
