Let’s start today’s tutorial How to check the data type of variable in Golang?

Here, we will use the go reflect package to check data type and to show in the console we will use fmt.Print() method.

let’s dive into code…

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"reflect"
)

func main() {
	data := 123
	dataType := reflect.TypeOf(data).Kind()
	fmt.Print(dataType)
}

in the above code, we are hole 123 in data variable and pass in reflect.TypeOf and it returns their datatype.

it will show output int

Try it yourself
