I would suggest working through the Tour of Go:
https://tour.golang.org/welcome/1

Then once you grasp those fundamentals start writing your own projects. Start with simple things and then add to them.

Learn what’s available to you in the standard library:
https://godoc.org/-/go

Examine repositories other people have created and experiment with and improve on those community packages. You’ll get experience with how others are solving problems with Go.

Like with any software development you’ll want to cultivate the ability to break your problem down into step by step chunks. You’ll get this skill from building projects. Thankfully Go makes building something that works a quick process.

Good luck on your journey, and if you get stuck this community is a fantastic resource for help.

Following along to a course or book I feel will save you tonnes of time while you learn Golang properly. Here’s a list of some of the best Go courses, tutorials & books: https://reactdom.com/go

I’m using Todd McLeod’s Learn How To Code: Google’s Go (golang) Programming Language, and am enjoying it. Todd’s easy style makes it easier to stick too.
Supplement it with Introducing Go: Build Reliable, Scalable Programs by Caleb Doxsey, and The Go Programming Language by Alan A. A. Donovan, and I can dig deeper into concepts I want more on.
I feel I’m learning and find value in these purchases.
I’m surprised Doxsey’s book isn’t in the Best Golang tutorials list but the others are and rightly so :+1:
