nice one.

The MoQingbird says:

The facecam adds nothing to this presentation; it only detracts from it by covering the code in the bottom corner of the slides

Anirudh Vyas says:

too many commercials – if i start a video (same video) about 10 times – I don’t deserve to get 10 different adds before it starts; this needs to be fixed.

Thanks a lot

El Canal de Shackra says:


I would like to ask: How do you customized your terminal prompt to look like that? Specially those separators and the “branch” arrow!

Chris Flynn says:

Jamal Martin says:

Video tutorials on step by step instructions for installing go on pc are necessary. So far, information is disjointed and relatively inadequate. For example, I receive GOPATH errors at times when trying to execute certain commands in the git terminal. From following the instructions in the go manual I still found myself in difficulty when trying to execute the Tetris game included as a test to verify proper install. I haven’t been able to solve that problem to date.

Please help. I’m fairly a newbie to programming. Need all the help I can get. I’m using windows 7 operating system.

Thank you.
