Want to hire Go developers on your own? Here are the skills you must look for while hiring a Golang programmer
Hiring Go developers might be an intricate task for you if you are a non-technical manager. Golang is the most popular used language for cloud native development, developing distributed applications and server-side applications. Many old infrastructures are replaced using Golang. The internet protocol for clock synchronization among networks called Network Time Protocol (NTP) relies on Golang. But, hiring the most skilled Golang engineer among thousands of developers is a challenging task for anyone. So, UltraGenius is here to assist you while recruiting the best talented Golang developers on your own. UltraGenius understands your job requirements and gets you only the top developers who have in-depth knowledge of development using Go programming language.
The following skills you must look for while hiring a Golang developer
Solid understanding of Go language and syntax
The Go developer must possess firm understanding of the Golang language and its syntax. The developers must know about –
- Go CLI
- Go keywords, identifiers, and filenames.
- Methods, structures, and Pointers.
- Arrays, maps, and slices.
- Operators, functions, data types, and constants.
- Error and Exception Handling.
- Design Patterns.
- Panic, Error, Defer, Recover.
- Channel, Buffer, Goroutine
- Arrow functions
- Blocked scope constructors let and const
- Advanced object literals
- Template literals
- Multi-line strings
- Module loaders
- Binary and octal literals
- Reflect API
- Destructuring assignment
Familiarity with Shell scripting
A shell script is designed to sequence and schedule system tasks and provide decision making linkage around them. Shell scripting is designed for performing multiple system level tasks such as creating, managing, and implementing system booting scripts, automating the installation process of a new version of a software, automating the repetitive tasks, and scheduling and executing the system processes. It includes many advantages for a Go developer like interactive debugging, quick start, and fast program or file selection.
Knowledge of Go libraries
The Go language provides a vast set of standard library that includes core packages that can be added to the Golang program saving the developer from writing multiple lines of code which streamlines the development. Some of the popular Golang libraries include – GORM, Gen, Goose, Go CLI, Go Kit, Glide, Authboss, Vegeta, Docker, Ginkgo, Docker, Kubernetes, Fuzzy, Etcd, NSQ, and mgo (mongodb driver). Golang also avails go-echarts library for the developers to work on graphs. GORM is one of the most popular database libraries used in Go and is a featured tool for object relational mapping.
Experienced working with Version Control System (VCS) like Git
To be a Golang programmer, you need to have knowledge of version control systems like Git, SVN, TFS and Mercurial. There is mostly use of Git for their work. This helps the team in collaborating and organizing your code; it also makes it easier to maintain the frequent changes that happen in codes. It’s helpful while reviewing old codes with newer ones or pulling from repositories when required or managing commit history as well as adding-committing-pulling (or pull). Along with this, Golang developers must know how to use add, push, pull, commit commands – branching and merging which allows developers to work independently on the code.
Knowledge of Go frameworks and tools
Golang allures software development process by its core frameworks like Revel, Martini, Gin Gonic, Beego (similar to Django framework in Python), Net / HTTP, Mango, Gorilla, Buffalo, Goji, and Gocraft. The Go developers must have knowledge of Go’s dependency management tools like Godep and Sltr, code generation tools such as Stringer, and router packages like Gorilla Mux. Besides this, the Go developers should know about GoConvey, Ginkgo, Vegeta, and HTTP testing tool.
Experience in API integration with REST and SOAP APIs
The NET/HTTP library in Go is best for building REST APIs. REST stands for Representational State Transfer defines a set of constraints of how an Internet scale distributed hypermedia system should be. A perfectly designed REST API is similar to a website running in the web browser with an in-built HTTP functionality. It uses GET, PUT, POST, PATCH, and DELTE method to performs operations on data. SOAP stands for Simple Object Access Protocol and uses only HTTP and XML. SOAP has the ability to work with application layer protocols such as HTTP, TCP, UDP, and SMTP.
Knowledge of Goroutines and channel patterns
A goroutine is a function or a method that runs concurrently with other functions in the same address space. Goroutines are similar to lightweight threads and the cost of creating goroutines is much less as compared to a thread. Goroutines internally act as coroutines and are multiplexed among several operating system threads.
Familiarity with Cloud
Golang is widely used for developing secure and efficient software on cloud platforms. Because of its concurrency feature, Golang is also known as ” Language of Cloud”. Golang helps to build large scalable systems maintaining concurrency via Goroutines. The Golang developers must know about application development and deployment using any of the cloud platforms including – AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud.
Expertise in implementing Microservices
Golang is a good choice for developing microservice and enables Golang developers create applications with high-load services. Go kit library is used for microservices development. It solves the problems that occur in distributed applications and systems so that developers can concentrate on the business logic of programming.
Knowledge of DevOps practices
DevOps is a set of processes that enables faster application development and provides general practices for building the best quality software through the system. Almost all deployment platforms use Golang, so the Go developers should know about Continuous Development, Continuous Testing, Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Deployment (CD), Continuous delivery, Continuous monitoring, and infrastrucutre as a code.
Understanding of Go's design patterns
The Go developer must have firm understanding of design patterns. A design pattern is a general and repeatable solution to any problem in software designing. Go’s design patterns include – Creational design pattern, Structural design pattern, Behavioral design pattern, Concurrency design pattern, and Stability design pattern.
Experience with deployment tools like Heroku, Docker, and Kubernetes
Docker and Kubernetes helps Go developers manage containers in software development and production. Docker can run in any environment of a developer’s choice like a public cloud service, a remote server, or a laptop, while Heroku should run in its own cloud environment. Kubernetes is an open source system that provides developers to automate deploys, run and manage containers, scale the deployments, deploy stateful and stateless applications, and many more.
Strong problem solving skills and code writing proficiency
The CGolang developer must have a strong problem solving skill The developers must be able to think abstractly and replace the existing solutions if needed. The Golang developer should know code debugging and testing. Check if the Go developer is able to write clean and concise code and can fluently communicate with other team members while explaining the code
