Go is a lovely little programming language that's almost perfectly suited to writing microservices. Join the session for a crash-course in Go, where we'll build an example microservice from first principles, and hopefully convince you to try Go for your next project!
Go is a lovely little programming language designed by smart people you can trust and continuously improved by a large and growing open-source community. Since its release in 2009, it's quickly become the language of the server, powering some of today's most exciting software projects and organizations, including Docker, CloudFlare, HashiCorp, CoreOS, and many more. In this talk we'll do a Go crash-course, and build, grow, and profile an example microservice. You'll leave with an understanding of Go's strengths, and hopefully consider it for your next project.
