In this course, she shows you how to learn Go quickly and continue delivering code at your regular speed in production. Adelina walks you through basics like program structure, running programs, declaring variables, basic data types, and pointers. She defines functions and walks you through how to use several of them in Go. Adelina goes over structures (structs) and interfaces, including call methods, modules, and interfaces.
