Build and upgrade an automated software delivery pipeline that supports containerization, integration testing, semantic versioning, automated deployment, and more.

Shipping Go you will learn how to:

  • Develop better software based on feedback from customers
  • Create a development pipeline that turns feedback into features
  • Reduce bugs with pipeline automation that validates code before it is deployed
  • Establish continuous testing for exceptional code quality
  • Serverless, container-based, and server-based deployments
  • Scale your deployment in a cost-effective way
  • Deliver a culture of continuous improvement

Shipping Go is a hands-on guide to shipping Go-based software. Author Joel Holmes shows you the easy way to set up development pipelines, fully illustrated with practical examples in the powerful Go language. You’ll put continuous delivery and continuous integration into action, and discover instantly useful guidance on automating your team’s build and reacting with agility to customer demands. Your new pipelines will ferry your projects through production and deployment, and also improve your testing, code quality, and production applications.

About the technology

An effective software delivery pipeline automates all stages, from initial design, through development, deployment, and ultimately the usage experience that feeds back into new features and releases. Go embraces the best practices of Continuous Delivery, and adds a few language-specific tools and twists of its own.

About the book

Shipping Go shows you how to build Go-specific software development pipelines. You’ll have a basic CI/CD process up and running by the time you finish Chapter 3, along with an iterative process for designing, releasing, and revising your applications. Then, you’ll systematically upgrade your pipeline to support containerization, integration testing, semantic versioning, and automated deployment. A set of handy appendices help you translate these valuable practices to Kotlin, Python, and JavaScript applications.
