Working with Design Patterns in Go (Golang)

What You'll Learn

  • How to use common design patterns in Go
  • Learn how to create loosely coupled software components
  • Streamline the software development process by using well known patterns
  • Build a real-world application using design patterns


  • Those who have familiarity with the Go programming language (required).
  • Mac or Windows computer and an Internet connection.


Go is a powerful language for building efficient and scalable applications. But as your projects grow, you'll encounter common problems that can be elegantly solved with design patterns.

This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to leverage these design patterns effectively in your Go code. We'll explore various categories of patterns, including:
  • Creational Patterns: Learn techniques for object creation that promote flexibility and decoupling.
  • Structural Patterns: Discover ways to compose classes and objects to achieve desired functionality.
  • Behavioral Patterns: Explore patterns that define communication and interaction between objects.
By understanding these patterns, you'll gain the ability to:

  • Write cleaner, more maintainable, and reusable code.
  • Improve the design and architecture of your Go applications.
  • Solve common programming challenges with proven solutions.
  • Communicate design concepts more effectively with other developers.

We'll approach design patterns with a practical lens, focusing on real-world Go scenarios. In fact, we'll build a simple web application that allows us to see how, why, and when you can use a particular design pattern to make your code more efficient, maintainable, and easy to understand. My goal is ensure that you'll gain hands-on experience implementing these patterns so that you can use them in your own projects.

So, whether you're a seasoned Go developer or just getting started with the language, this course will provide you with valuable tools to take your Go development skills to the next level.
