Get started with Temporal and Go

Temporal Go SDK

Take your first steps into building apps with Temporal and Go by setting up your development environment, exploring how Temporal Applications work, and diving into the documentation.

Set up a local development environment for Temporal and Go

Make sure you have everything you need to start working with Temporal on your local machine.

Run your first Temporal application with the Go SDK

Download and run a small application and explore how Temporal executes Workflows and Activities, and how you can recover from failures.

Build a Temporal App from Scratch in Go

Write a program from the ground up with tests.

Take Temporal 101 in Go

In this course, you will explore the basic building blocks of Temporal: Workflows and Activities. You’ll use these building blocks along with Temporal's Go SDK to develop a small application that communicates with an external service. You'll see how Temporal helps you recover from failures and explore Temporal's execution model and event history. You'll use the Temporal Web UI and Temporal’s command-line tools to explore and interact with your Workflows, and you'll use what you've learned to add new features to your existing Workflow.

Review Documentation and other resources

Once you're familiar with the basics, you may want to explore the documentation and code examples.
