  • Notice the capitalisation of the function name, this means that the function is exported, this is similar to the premise of public and private methods. If the variable / function starts with a lower case, then it is a private method and can only be used in that package. However, if it is a capitalised name, like HelloWorld, we can use this else where.
func incrementByOne(number int){    number += 1    fmt.Println(number)}
func incrementByOne(number int) int{    number += 1    return number}
func incrementByOne(number, test int) (int, int) {    number += 1    return number, test}
