During this workshop you will build a web application from scratch using Go to build the backend and some HTML, CSS, JS on the frontend, of course.

You will gets a hands on experience implementing REST APIs with and without any frameworks. We will also use the built-in concurrency features of Go to make the app faster.

We will also add features to the app using some of the services available on App Engine:

  • List text here- datastore to store data in a non relational database.
  • Memcache to cache and access data faster.
  • Task queues to schedule tasks to be executed later.
  • Mail to send and receive emails.

The app will then be deployed on top of Google App Engine, which provides a free tier, so attendees will go through the whole process from inception of an app to deployment and monitoring.


Francesc Campoy Flores joined the Go team in 2012 as Developer Programs Engineer. Since then, he has written some considerable didactic resources and traveled the world attending conferences and organizing live courses.

He joined Google in 2011 as a backend software engineer working mostly in C++ and Python, but it was with Go that he rediscovered how fun programming can be. He loves languages; fluent in four of them, he’s now tackling a fifth one.
