Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll step into the role of a Platform Engineer and build a command-line application for generating a web application scaffold using Go. This incredibly useful tool will ensure that all the services across your company follow standard practices and match a preset source code structure. Your colleagues are excited—with this new tool they can bootstrap their projects more quickly and ship features faster. Your challenges will include using the Go standard library package to implement a command-line application, creating web application templates, and writing end-to-end tests.
