Previously I’ve gone through the steps I take to get a solid development machine setup. From the base operating system load, to the browser and basic IDEs I install. Now I’ve got more videos and the respective notes and details about what two language stacks I setup next; Python and Go.
Over the next few months while I read through these books I hope to provide summaries and related notes on the material. Who knows, maybe you’ll want to dive into the material yourself! Until then happy thrashing code and may you have high retention and comprehension in reading!
When choosing an operating system to work with there are a number of factors to take into account. Some of these factors include; What language stack and tooling will you need to use?
What focus beyond software development will the machine have?
What apps and tooling do you already have?
In this post I cover putting together a simple http server with a video on creating the http server, setting a status code, which provides the basic elements you need to further build out a fully featured server. This post is paired with a video too.
In this short (less than 4 minutes) video I put together a Go module library, then setup some first initial tests calling against functions in the module.
