The await/async concurrency pattern in Golang

         ·      · · · · ·

Introduction First of all...happy new year! I decided after a while to come back online speaking about Golang. In this post, I will focus on parallelism and concurrency and how you can achieve the same behavioral pattern you can achieve with Node.js using await/async statements, without the difficulties (hopefully) of dealing with Single Threaded Event Loop and these primitives (that, btw, keep things really simple). Let's start! A bit of confusion Concurrency and parallelism are two terms that are bound to come across often when looking into multitasking and are often used interchangeably.

The problems of life Each of us has dreams, aspirations, hobbies, interests, but also hundreds of deadlines, a thousand commitments, ten thousand thoughts, a hundred thousand different problems to cope with every day. I am a computer scientist and personally all these things in my life translate into a huge pile of [things/books/articles/guide/blogs] to read, which by the way are very often interrelated. The situation is more or less this:
