Basic issue with the app engine lab challenge – Getting Started with App Engine (Go)


very novice question but an hour of googling hasn’t helped me to resolve it so I throw out the question here, might hopefully help someone else too…

I picked the Getting Started with App Engine (Go) lab ( as I thought it would be a good starting point. However running in the cloudshell fails and I can’t really see why. I thought cloudshell would be up to date with all latest greatest and ready to rock… 

The error is the following: OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/google/google-cloud-sdk/platform/google_appengine/goroot-1.9/pkg/tool’

I appreciate this isn’t an issue related to the ACE course and possibly a bit to narrow to post here, but on the other hand I think that if there are basic issues with Cloudshell it might be something that other GCP novices besides me will be affected by and some guidance could be helpful.

That tutorial seems to be out of date. I myself am not familiar with go and tried it and ran into an issue with dev_appserver. The tutotrial doesn’t mention where you are suppose to get that file from.

I am able to get the go app running when I update the hello.go and app.yaml with content here

I ran into the same issue and just changing the runtime as follow "runtime: go111" it worked
