In this episode, we’re joined by Kelsey Hightower to discuss the evolution of cloud infrastructure management, the role Kubernetes and its API play in it, and how we, as developers and operators, should be adapting to these changes.
Carmen and Jon talk with Rob Pike and Robert Griesemer (the creators of Go) about its origins, growth, influence, and future. This an epic episode that dives deep into the history and details of the how’s and why’s of Go, and the choices they’ve made along the way in creating this awesome programing language.
Steve Francia joined the show and told us EVERYTHING about Go’s new branding strategy (and don’t worry, the gopher isn’t going anywhere!)
Jon, Mat, Johnny, and special guest Cory LaNou discuss the ins and outs of structuring Go programs. Why is app structure so important? Why is it hard to structure Go apps? What happens if we get it wrong? Why do we confuse folder structures with application design? How should a new Go app be structured?
Mat is joined by Peter Bourgon, Kat Zień, and Ben Johnson to talk about application design in Go — principles, trade-offs, common mistakes, patterns, and the things you should consider when it comes to application design.
Russ Cox joins us this week to talk about how Russ got involved with Go, Vgo, error handling, updates on Go 2.0, more.
Go was designed with concurrency in mind. That’s why we have language primitives like goroutines, channels, wait groups, and mutexes. They’re very powerful when used correctly, but they can be very complicated if used unwisely.
Roberto Clapis joins the team once again to drop async wisdom in your ears. Don’t worry, we do it in serial. 😉
We’re back! Panelists Mat Ryer, Johnny Boursiquot, Jaana B. Dogan, and Mark Bates discuss Go 2, the future of Go, what they like and don’t like, and what they would add or remove.
Mat, Johnny, Jon, and special guest Ian Lance Taylor discuss generics in Go. What are generics and why are they useful? Why aren’t interfaces enough? How will the standard library change if generics are added to Go? How has the community contributed to generics? If generics are added, how will this negatively affect the language?
Mat, Johnny, and Jaana are joined by Francesc Campoy to talk about Graph databases. We ask all the important questions — What are graph databases (and why do we need them)? What advantages do they have over relational databases? Are graph databases better at answering questions you didn’t anticipate? How is data structured? How do queries work? What problems are they good at solving? What problems are they not suitable for? And…since we had Francesc on the hot seat, we asked him about Just for Func and when it’s coming back.
