SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gopher Academy LLC announces the launch of new training and consulting offerings for Go, Docker, and Kubernetes. The organizers of the largest Go conference in the world, GopherCon, have announced the expansion of their platform for the Go community. When Erik St. Martin and Brian Ketelsen created Gopher Academy, their vision was to deliver world class conferences and foster education for the Go programming community. The company is excited to expand its mission and offerings to meet the learning demands of businesses and developers.
Go is an open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community with the goal of creating a language to build simple, reliable, and efficient software. "Go is rapidly becoming the native language for the cloud and distributed computing," says Ketelsen. "We're seeing demand from customers ranging from tiny startups to Fortune 100 companies for quality Go training."
The Gopher Academy Instructor team includes Brian Ketelsen, Mark Bates, and Cory LaNou, all of whom have real world, hand on experience developing and deploying applications and services using Go. "Brian, Cory, & Mark have applied their incredible Go knowledge to the classroom and community for years. They're engaging instructors with a thoughtful dedication to creating and teaching in-depth training material. It's amazing to see what they've done for teams across so many different companies." Ben Johnson, freelance Go developer and Author of BoltDB, The Secret Lives of Data, & Go Walkthrough. Erik and Brian will continue in their leadership roles for Gophercon, with the fourth annual event happening July 12th in Denver. Sarah Rosenbaum, a tech industry expert, leads the sales and marketing efforts.
Long time Go, Docker, and Kubernetes community leader Jessie Frazelle is excited about the new offerings from Gopher Academy. "The team at Gopher Academy is the most suitable to teach others how to program with Go and Kubernetes," Frazelle said. "They are long-time Gophers and Linux nerds at heart with the skills to empower others to be highly successful."
Gopher Academy has invested in three different learning environments to deliver the most useful material delivered via reliable, easy to use platforms for our clients. This includes onsite training, online real-time training, and online self-paced training. The training materials used for all three platforms are sourced from a common base to ensure the same high-quality presentation regardless of delivery mechanism. To celebrate the new learning platform, GopherAcademy is offering a free online course on Tuesday, January 31st. The course is an introduction to developing web applications with Buffalo, the hyper-productive web anti-framework written by Mark Bates. Additional classes will be added by mid-February. Registration is available through the company website.
