About The Book

Some smart people working at Google came out with a language called Go, and it's got a wicked awesome standard library. The problem is, the standard library of any language plays second fiddle to the syntax and other libraries that come out on Github

With Go, The Standard Library, I give you the tools to take Go by the horns and be productive without installing every library on Github.

Only $29? Surely you can't be serious

I am serious. And don't call me Shirley. Get it now before I change my mind! It's an in depth look at the library of packages that come standard with your Go distribution, and it's a big library. We're talking 38 top level packages.

Great grandmother's memory allocator! What if I don't want to hand over my hard earned $29?

If you're not quite ready to part with 29 clams just yet, two full chapters are available as a Go, The Standard Library free sample. You can also check out the table of contents outline too, which isn't even close to done yet and we're already up to 398 pages! I mean, you're already at way less than a dollar a page.

In the end it's only a dollar a chapter...

I'm no mathemagician, but that's a pretty solid deal to me.

As I go, that price might go up a bit more.
