No Need to Panic - Concurrency in Go with Goroutines and Channels


Go programs are statically typed and compiled with support for concurrency that has been built into both the language and the runtime. A function that is launched as a goroutine is scheduled and executed on an available logical processor. A channel data type allows goroutines to synchronize and pass messages. This example-driven session shows developers how to implement concurrency techniques with goroutines and channels. You’ll learn how to create buffered and unbuffered channels, identify race conditions, and detect deadlock at run time.
