Utilizing Go Constants

Understand constants in Go, how to declare them, and their uses.

Constants provide values that are set at compile time and cannot change. This is in contrast to variables, which store values that can be set at runtime and can be altered. This provides types that cannot accidentally be changed by a user and are allocated for use in the software on startup, providing some speed advantages and safety over variable declarations.
