This is a curated list of public talks, workshops & courses I’ve delivered throughout the years.
Learn Programming with Go, One Game at a Time
This is my first course on learning programming with the Go (Golang) programming language, tailored for complete beginners and more experienced students, aiming to grow their project portfolio or pick up a new, exciting programming language to learn.
- It contains nearly 26 hours of instructional video, covering the fundamentals of programming via the Go programming language. 🎥
- Along with 75 well crafted exercises, which aim to help you master what you’ve learnt in the videos, but also stretch you with some extra challenges, so that you become more and more autonomous as the course progresses. 🔥
- Finally, you’ll be building four non-trivial projects, where you’re building your own video games 🎮
- ✅ Snake 🐍
- ✅ Pong 🏓
- ✅ Hangman
- ✅ Zombie Shooter 🧟
Thread-Safety in Go – An Overlooked Concern
A talk I lead at an Uber Engineering event at Sofia, Bulgaria. The talk covers the fundamentals of thread-safety as it applies to Golang development.
