Hits of the Summer

This episode is different than what you’re used to. We’ve been clipping highlights of the show for awhile now to share on Twitter and YouTube. A side effect of that effort is a bunch of awesome clips just sitting on Jerod’s hard drive collecting digital dust. So, here’s a beta test of a “best of” style clips show covering the summer months. Let us know if you like it!

The latest on Generics

Robert and Ian join us to talk about the latest updates on generics in Go. What type of feedback are they looking for as developers get their hands on tools designed to experiment with generics and Go? What was the deal with the featherweight Go paper that also discussed generics? Why can’t we use angle brackets for generics?

We have regrets

Leaning from mistakes is key to progressing. In this episode Ben, Aaron, Kris, and Jon discuss some of our mistakes - like spending too much time designing a feature that isn’t that important, or using channels excessively when first learning Go - and how we learned from them.

The trouble with databases

Databases are tricky, especially at scale. In this episode Mat, Jaana, and Jon discuss different types of databases, the pros and cons of each, along with the many ways developers can have issues with databases. They also explore questions like, “Why are serial IDs problematic?” and “What alternatives are there if we aren’t using serial IDs?” while at it.

Immediate mode GUIs

Mat, Johnny and Jon are joined by Elias, creator of Gio, to discuss GUIs. Specifically, we explore the pros and cons of immediate vs retained mode and explore some examples of each, as well how some frameworks like React are attempting to bring the benefits of immediate mode to a retained mode world (the DOM).

WebRTC in Go

The gang discusses WebRTC with Sean DuBois, creator of the Pion project and author of a pure Go WebRTC implementation. What exactly is WebRTC? Why is it so popular for video chatting? How does it work under the hood, and how does it compare with other real-time communication options?

WFH

Working from home can be challenging, especially amid school closings and everything else caused by COVID-19. In this episode panelists Jon, Mat, Carmen, and Mark share advice and experiences they have accumulated over many years of working from home. They cover separating your work space from your personal space, signaling to your family that you are busy, ways to keep track of the time, and suggestions for getting some exercise in when you can.

Stop the presses

Newsletters play a unique role for developers. As the Go community continues to grow and mature, these newsletters provide a much-needed filter for the oft overwhelming stream of new articles, talks, and libraries produced by the community on a weekly basis.

In this episode Johnny, Jon, and Mat are joined by Peter Cooper of the Golang Weekly newsletter to discuss his role as a newsletter curator. We explore difficult topics that touch on ethics and responsibilities of a curator and of course, the impact Peter and his team have on shaping, at least in part, what many in the Go community get exposed to.

Quack like a wha-?

Interfaces are everywhere in Go. The basic error type is an interface, writing with the fmt package means you are probably using an interface, and there are countless other instances where they pop up. In this episode Mark, Mat, Johnny, and Jon discuss interfaces at length, exploring what they are, how they are using them in their own projects, as well as tips for how you can leverage them in your own code.
