Go ships with a powerful testing framework. Tests in Go are written in the Go
language, so there is no need to learn another syntax. This chapter will explore
basic tests, table driven tests, and sub-tests. Concepts such as race
conditions, code coverage, test automation. Understanding test options such as
parallel, short testing, timing out tests, and verbose are also covered.
Go comes with a powerful set of tools for profiling and improving the
performance of your code. Benchmarking is one of those tools, and the first
one most developers start with. In this module we will cover basic
benchmarking, some common benchmarking mistakes, and how to compare benchmarks
to see if performance has improved.
Go ships with a number of profiling tools. This chapter will walk you through how to:
