React frontend with Go backend; how can I create this?

so I want to deploy to heroku this app. just like react with an express/node backend using concurrently, how can I do the same where I have a react frontend with a go backend to deploy to heroku? Is there a guide on this that is easy to follow?

Help is appreciated!

This is a very broad post spanning app dev and infrastructure. For now, I would completely ignore the infrastructure side (deploying to Heroku) and focus on learning the basics of go. Some great resources for this are:

Once you’re familiar with the basics and you have a few Hello World-y apps under your belt, move on to some more web-specific and react-specific guides:

Once you have your react front-end with go back-end running locally and doing something interesting, then start thinking about deploying it to Heroku.
