Go Systems Programming

Go Systems Programming - Mihalis Tsoukalos


 Go is the new systems programming language for Linux and Unix systems. It is also the language in which some of the most prominent cloud-level systems have been written, such as Docker. Where C programmers used to rule, Go programmers are in demand to write highly optimized systems programming code.

 Created by some of the original designers of C and Unix, Go expands the systems programmers toolkit and adds a mature, clear programming language. Traditional system applications become easier to write since pointers are not relevant and garbage collection has taken away the most problematic area for low-level systems code: memory management.

 This book opens up the world of high-performance Unix system applications to the beginning Go programmer. It does not get stuck on single systems or even system types, but tries to expand the original teachings from Unix system level programming to all types of servers, the cloud, and the web.

What you will learn

  • Explore the Go language from the standpoint of a developer conversant with Unix, Linux, and so on
  • Understand Goroutines, the lightweight threads used for systems and concurrent applications
  • Learn how to translate Unix and Linux systems code in C to Golang code
  • How to write fast and lightweight server code
  • Dive into concurrency with Go
  • Write low-level networking code

About the Author

 Mihalis Tsoukalos is a Unix administrator, programmer, DBA, and mathematician, who enjoys writing technical books and articles and learning new things. He has written more than 250 technical articles for many magazines including Sys Admin, MacTech, Linux User and Developer, USENIX ;login:, Linux Format, and Linux Journal. His research interests include databases, operating systems, Statistics, and machine learning.

 He is also the technical editor for MongoDB in Action, Second Edition, published by Manning.

Writing A Compiler In Go

Writing A Compiler In Go - Thorsten Ball


 This is the sequel to Writing An Interpreter In Go. We're picking up right where we left off and write a compiler and a virtual machine for Monkey.

 Runnable and tested code front and center, built from the ground up, step by step — just like before. But this time, we're going to define bytecode, compile Monkey and execute it in our very own virtual machine. It's the next step in Monkey's evolution. It's the sequel to … a programming language.

 Writing A Compiler In Go is the sequel to Writing An Interpreter In Go.

 It starts right where the first one stopped, with a fully-working, fully-tested Monkey interpreter in hand, connecting both books seamlessly, ready to build a compiler and a virtual machine for Monkey. In this book, we use the codebase (included in the book!) from the first part and extend it. We take the lexer, the parser, the AST, the REPL and the object system and use them to build a new, faster implementation of Monkey, right next to the tree-walking evaluator we built in the first book.

 The approach is unchanged, too. Working, tested code is the focus, we build everything from scratch, do baby steps, write tests firsts, use no 3rd-party-libraries and see and understand how all the pieces fit together.It's a continuation in prose and in code. Do you need to read the first part before this one? If you're okay with treating the code from the first book as black box, then no. But that's not what these books are about; they're about opening up black boxes, looking inside and shining a light. You'll have the best understanding of where we're going in this book, if you know where we started.

Learn how to write a compiler and a virtual machine

 Our main goal in in this book is to evolve Monkey. We change its architecture and turn it into a bytecode compiler and virtual machine.We'll take the lexer, the parser, the AST and the object system we wrote in the first book and use them to build our own Monkey compiler and virtual machine … from scratch! We'll build them side-by-side so that we'll always have a running system we can steadily evolve.What we end up with is not only much closer to the programming languages we use every day, giving us a better understanding of how they work, but also 3x faster. And that's without explicitly aiming for performance.

Here's what we'll do:

  • We define our own bytecode instructions, specifying their operands and their encoding. Along the way, we also build a mini-disassembler for them.
  • We write a compiler that takes in a Monkey AST and turns it into bytecode by emitting instructions
  • At the same time we build a stack-based virtual machine that executes the bytecode in its main loop

 We'll learn a lot about computers, how they work, what machine code and opcodes are, what the stack is and how to work with stack pointers and frame pointers, what it means to define a calling convention, and much more.

We also

  • build a symbol table and a constant pool
  • do stack arithmetic
  • generate jump instructions
  • build frames into our VM to execute functions with local bindings and arguments!
  • add built-in functions to the VM
  • get real closures working in the virtual machine and learn why closure-compilation is so tricky

Writing an Interpreter in Go

Writing an Interpreter in Go - Thorsten Ball


 In this book we will create a programming language together. We'll start with 0 lines of code and end up with a fully working interpreter for the Monkey programming language.

 Step by step. From tokens to output. All code shown and included. Fully tested.

Buy this book to learn:

  • How to build an interpreter for a C-like programming language from scratch
  • What a lexer, a parser and an Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) are and how to build your own
  • What closures are and how and why they work
  • What the Pratt parsing technique and a recursive descent parser is
  • What others talk about when they talk about built-in data structures
  • What REPL stands for and how to build one

Why this book?

 This is the book I wanted to have a year ago. This is the book I couldn't find. I wrote this book for you and me. So why should you buy it? What's different about it, compared to other interpreter or compiler literature?

  • Working code is the focus. Code is not just found in the appendix. Code is the main focus of this book.
  • It's small! It has around 200 pages of which a great deal are readable, syntax-highlighted, working code.
  • The code presented in the book is easy to understand, easy to extend, easy to maintain.
  • No 3rd party libraries! You're not left wondering: "But how does tool X do that?" We won't use a tool X. We only use the Go standard library and write everything ourselves.
  • Tests! The interpreter we build in the book is fully tested! Sometimes in TDD style, sometimes with the tests written after. You can easily run the tests to experiment with the interpreter and make changes.

This book is for you if you...

  • learn by building, love to look under the hood
  • love programming and to program for the sake of learning and joy!
  • are interested in how your favorite, interpreted programming language works
  • never took a compiler course in college
  • want to get started with interpreters or compilers…
  • ... but don't want to work through a theory-heavy, 800 pages, 4 pounds compiler book as a beginner
  • kept screaming "show me the code!" when reading about interpreters and compilers
  • always wanted to say: "Holy shit, I built a programming language!"

 Welcome and thank you for reading these lines. Since I started programming in Go, I have always enjoyed its extraordinary commitment to simplicity. It is difficult to find another language that can make complex things so easily. That is the beauty of this language. Years have passed by and Go is no longer the new kid on the block, it has already become a mature language surrounded by a rich ecosystem of libraries, projects, and tools. Talking about Go is no longer talking about that fancy language that makes your life easier. Go is the gravity centre of a continuously growing ecosystem of amazing solutions maintained by a devoted community of developers. Go was originally designed to simplify the building of complex systems. However, when a developer decides to learn Go most of the learning resources simply explain the language. This book goes one step further by exploring tools, libraries, and projects from the Go ecosystem you can use to build ready-for-production systems. Everything a gopher must know in a single book. I hope you find this book useful.


 This book is oriented to new Go adopters and developers with programming experience in other languages. The first part of this book covers the Go language from its basics to more advanced concepts. The second part assumes these concepts to be known by the reader and explores how to use them with other tools to build systems. If you are new to Go you can start from the beginning. However, if you have some experience you can start with the second part and revisit any basic concept if needed. Or you can simply go and check the chapters at your convenience.

Let's Go Further

Let's Go Further - Alex Edwards


 This book is written as a follow up to Let’s Go, and we’ll leverage a lot of the information and code patterns from that book again here.

 If you’ve already read and enjoyed Let’s Go, then this book should be a good fit for you and the ideal next step in your learning. If you haven’t, then I highly recommend starting with Let’s Go first — especially if you’re a newcomer to Go.

 You can read this as a standalone book, but please be aware that it is somewhat advanced — it doesn’t explain the fundamentals in detail, and some topics (like testing) don’t feature at all because they were covered heavily in the previous book. But if you’re comfortable using Go and already have a decent amount of experience behind you, then this book may also be a good fit for you. Feel free to jump straight in.

Generic Data Structures and Algorithms in Go

Generic Data Structures and Algorithms in Go - Richard Wiener


 Advance your understanding of generic data structures and algorithms and their applications using Go and the effective use of concurrency. You are invited on a journey that aims to improve your programming and problem-solving skills. This book takes you to the next step by showing how to get your programs to work efficiently as well as correctly.

 As you explore many data structures and the algorithms and applications associated with them, you'll focus on the trade-offs between speed and storage and the benefits of deploying concurrency when appropriate. This book will demonstrate the huge increases in application performance that are possible. The presentation of classic data structures and techniques of algorithm design (greedy, divide and conquer, branch-and-bound to name a few) provides an essential foundation and toolkit for problem solving. But this book goes further by presenting heuristic algorithms and their implementations for solving computationally intractable combinatoric optimization problems such as the travelling salesperson problem. Simulated annealing and genetic algorithms are among the techniques used.

 The consistent style of coding used throughout this book exploits Go’s ability to implement abstract, generic and constrained generic data types without the use of classes.  Although some familiarity with Go is assumed, this book should advance your ability to use Go to tackle server-side applications, games, machine learning, information retrieval and other application domains where speed and storage efficiency is essential.

What You'll Learn

  • Explore classical data structures and algorithms aimed at making your applications run faster or require less storage
  • Use the new generic features of Go to build reusable data structures
  • Utilize concurrency for maximizing application performance
  • See the power of heuristic algorithms for computationally intractable problems
  • Enhance and improve your Go programming skills

Who This Book Is For

 Practicing Go software developers and students who wish to advance their programming and problem-solving skills and experience the excitement and see the benefits of using generic data structures and algorithms that utilize concurrency whenever possible.
