Getting started with any programming language requires some initial setup, and Go is no different. Occasionally, the setup of compiled languages can be tricky, but thankfully Go has a fairly painless setup. In this learning activity, you've been asked to set up a development server for your boss who wants to learn Go but doesn't want to go through the setup. By the time you've finished this activity, you should feel comfortable setting up a Go development environment.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
