Got really bored of JavaScript and decided to try Go.

Built an API endpoint that provides a list of Nigerian Universities (federal, state and private)

The data is scrapped from NUC website

Link to API https://nigerian-universities.onrender.com/

For more, here is the GitHub repo

Adding details to it will be so cool. Imagine info like year of establishment, capacity, programs offered, major buildings and structures, notable research papers, events, and more will be so nice to have.

Nice one. One thing that can drastically increase your API response time is to store the contents of the json file in memory instead of loading and parsing it everytime a request is made.

So when your application starts for the first time, you can load and parse the content into a slice of structs (where each struct contains data for each University), then any API call will work in memory, greatly increasing performance.
