Buffalo Master Class - Rapid Web Development In Go

Duration: 3 Hours

In this 3-hour online master class, Buffalo creator and lead developer, Mark Bates will build a fully tested, complete, CRUD implementation for a resource, all while explaining each step of the process along the way.

This master class will touch upon the following aspects of Buffalo:

  • Routing
  • Templating
  • Understanding buffalo.Resource
  • Testing Actions
  • Models
  • Validations

This module covers general environment setup and other resource related information needed to complete the courses contained within.

Buffalo is a web ecosystem, and not just a framework. This module will cover why writing websites using the standard library is so painful, and what Buffalo does to make it not only easier, but much faster and maintainable as well.

Actions are used to configure your application, routing, middleware, and more. Routes are used to create distinct namespaces in your application that you can navigate to.

Buffalo ships with a number of implementations designed to give you the most flexibility when rendering your views. This module will cover those implementations, the plush templating library, and many built in helpers.

This module will cover the basic CRUD implementations using Buffalo, as well as migrations, and how to test your CRUD actions.

Working with form data is one of the most common tasks a web application has to do. This module will cover how to bind data, writing forms, and form validation.

Go has the ability to build and cross compile with ease. This chapter will cover the different ways to build your binary and additionally covers concepts for embedding build information such as version and GitHub SHA-1 hash. See how build tags are used to conditionally include specific branches of code by targeting specific platforms or simply using the tags provided.

One of Go's strengths is it's ability to build a statically linked binary for a wide variety of platforms. Buffalo builds on this strength. This module will cover how to build Buffalo for different operating systems and architectures, as well as how to deploy via Docker and Heroku.

This module covers where to get more support on Go, recommends books and videos, and list contact information for our instructors.
