Go Systems Programming: Master Linux and Unix system level programming with Go

Go Systems Programming: Master Linux and Unix system level programming with Go Lowest new price: $49.99
List price: $49.99
Author: Mihalis Tsoukalos

Key Features

  • Learn how to write system's level code in Golang, similar to Unix/Linux systems code
  • Ramp up in Go quickly
  • Deep dive into Goroutines and Go concurrency to be able to take advantage of Go server-level constructs

Book Description

Go is the new systems programming language for Linux and Unix systems. It is also the language in which some of the most prominent cloud-level systems have been written, such as Docker. Where C programmers used to rule, Go programmers are in demand to write highly optimized systems programming code.

Created by some of the original designers of C and Unix, Go expands the systems programmers toolkit and adds a mature, clear programming language. Traditional system applications become easier to write since pointers are not relevant and garbage collection has taken away the most problematic area for low-level systems code: memory management.

This book opens up the world of high-performance Unix system applications to the beginning Go programmer. It does not get stuck on single systems or even system types, but tries to expand the original teachings from Unix system level programming to all types of servers, the cloud, and the web.

What you will learn

  • Explore the Go language from the standpoint of a developer conversant with Unix, Linux, and so on
  • Understand Goroutines, the lightweight threads used for systems and concurrent applications
  • Learn how to translate Unix and Linux systems code in C to Golang code
  • How to write fast and lightweight server code
  • Dive into concurrency with Go
  • Write low-level networking code

Mihalis Tsoukalos is a Unix administrator, programmer, DBA, and mathematician, who enjoys writing technical books and articles and learning new things. He has written more than 250 technical articles for many magazines including Sys Admin, MacTech, Linux User and Developer, USENIX ;login:, Linux Format, and Linux Journal.

Understanding the Linux Kernel, Third Edition

Understanding the Linux Kernel, Third Edition Lowest new price: $25.50
Lowest used price: $10.00
List price: $59.99
Author: Daniel P. Bovet
Brand: Daniel P Bovet

In order to thoroughly understand what makes Linux tick and why it works so well on a wide variety of systems, you need to delve deep into the heart of the kernel. The kernel handles all interactions between the CPU and the external world, and determines which programs will share processor time, in what order. It manages limited memory so well that hundreds of processes can share the system efficiently, and expertly organizes data transfers so that the CPU isn't kept waiting any longer than necessary for the relatively slow disks.

The third edition of Understanding the Linux Kernel takes you on a guided tour of the most significant data structures, algorithms, and programming tricks used in the kernel. Probing beyond superficial features, the authors offer valuable insights to people who want to know how things really work inside their machine. Important Intel-specific features are discussed. Relevant segments of code are dissected line by line. But the book covers more than just the functioning of the code; it explains the theoretical underpinnings of why Linux does things the way it does.

This edition of the book covers Version 2.6, which has seen significant changes to nearly every kernel subsystem, particularly in the areas of memory management and block devices. The book focuses on the following topics:

  • Memory management, including file buffering, process swapping, and Direct memory Access (DMA)
  • The Virtual Filesystem layer and the Second and Third Extended Filesystems
  • Process creation and scheduling
  • Signals, interrupts, and the essential interfaces to device drivers
  • Timing
  • Synchronization within the kernel
  • Interprocess Communication (IPC)
  • Program execution

Understanding the Linux Kernel will acquaint you with all the inner workings of Linux, but it's more than just an academic exercise. You'll learn what conditions bring out Linux's best performance, and you'll see how it meets the challenge of providing good system response during process scheduling, file access, and memory management in a wide variety of environments. This book will help you make the most of your Linux system.
