The screencast includes example code to show best practices in reading, writing and updating data to the database. Note that if the standard library documentation is lacking for you, http://go-database-sql.org/ is another wonderful source of documentation.
Note: the examples in this screencast operate against an in-memory SQLite database, but we point out the line of code to change to operate against any other supported database.
Check out the example code on Github.
