Go In 5 Minutes episode 14 showed enough basic information to get started with Go’s html/template package. This screencast goes beyond the basics to arm you with everything else you need to build powerful applications.

What’s inside

This is a 1 hour screencast video, extensive documentation files (in Markdown format), and working Go code that illustrate the following concepts:

  • Template pipelines

  • Custom functions

  • Template contexts

  • Template includes

  • Patterns for composition

  • Template blocks

  • Patterns for page layouts

  • Building your own template manager

  • Improving render performance

The video is hosted and streamed on Gumroad, and you’ll have lifelong access to it. The code and documentation are downloadable and licensed liberally under the Apache 2.0 license.

Modern web applications need to be more functional and higher performance than ever before. This screencast and its complementary resources will help you achieve those goals and learn best practices for your future projects.

This product is a consolidated version of concepts I developed for software engineers at a large Silicon Valley company. The lessons in this screencast are similar to those presented in a thousand dollar training session I created; now they’re available here in a convenient format for you to learn at your own pace.

About the creator

Aaron Schlesinger is the creator of Go In 5 Minutes and a software architect at a cloud technologies company. He’s been a software engineer for over 10 years, and has been writing complex, performant software exclusively in Go for over 3 years. He also teaches the language to other engineers through Go In 5 Minutes, and at local and national conferences.

Go In 5 Minutes has over 1000 YouTube subscribers and has been extremely well received by the Go community. Aaron started the free screencast series to help beginner and intermediate Go programmers advance their careers, and he runs this extended screencast series to complement each free episode with depth, context and detail.

This extended screencast describes all of the advanced features of html/template and explains why and how to use them in your codebase. It also goes beyond the why and how to describe the best way to structure your programs to take full advantage of the package’s features. Everything is taken from his real-world experiences and those of other Go programmers whose opinions and ideas he carefully curates.
