The Berlin tech ecosystem was all about PHP/Python for a long time. In the recent years it became a tech hub and an early adopter of Go. In this conversation we’ll see how this reflects in the 10+ years old Go meetup, with the meetup organizing team.

Baruch Sadogursky (Chief Sticker Officer at JFrog) joins Natalie & Johnny to lament the current state of dependency management in Go and other languages. They discuss the problems dependency managers face, possible technical mitigations like SBOMs, people problems that will never be solved by tech, and take questions from listeners in the #gotimefm channel of Gophers Slack.

Discussing Go's annual developer survey

2021-11-04T16:30:00Z #go 🎧 19,237

Each year a group of user researchers and the Go team get together and create a survey for the Go community. The results of the survey are analyzed and turned into a report made available to everyone in the Go community. In this episode we sit down with Alice Merrick and Todd Kulesza to discuss the survey, how it’s made, and some of the interesting results from this year’s survey.

SIV and the V2+ issue

2021-07-15T15:30:00Z #go 🎧 18,820

Go modules brought about quite a few changes to the Go ecosystem. One of those changes is semantic import versioning (SIV), which has a fairly pronounced effect on how libraries are identified. In this episode we are joined by Tim Heckman and Peter Bourgon to discuss some of the downsides to these changes and how it has lead to what a subset of the Go community refers to as the “v2+ problem.”

The internet wouldn’t exist as we know it if it weren’t for TCP and UDP, yet many developers don’t quite understand the technology powering the web. In this episode we talk with Adam Woodbeck, author of Network Programming with Go, to learn about TCP and UDP; what they are, how they work, and how one can experiment with tools like Wireshark and Go to learn more.

The funny bits from 2021

Here’s a little bonus episode before we get back to your regularly scheduled Go Time. We’re calling it the funny bits. It’s a compilation of times we cracked up making the show for y’all. If you dig it, holler at Jerod. If you don’t, email Mat Ryer.

Concurrency, parallelism, and async design

Play
2019-12-10T17:32:57Z #go 🎧 18,257

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. 😉

The tools we love

The Go ecosystem has a hoard of tools and editors for Gophers to choose from and it can be difficult to find ones that are a good fit for each individual. In this episode, we discuss what tools and editors we’re using, the ones we wish existed, how we go about finding new ones, and why we sometimes choose to write our own tools.

The year is 2053. The tabs-vs-spaces wars are long over. Ron Evans is the only Go programmer still alive on Earth. All he does is maintain old Go code. It’s terrible! He must find a way to warn his fellow gophers before it’s too late. Good thing he finally got that PDQ transmission system working…

Go templating using Templ

Play
2023-09-13T15:15:00Z #go +1 🎧 18,074

Go’s known for it’s fantastic standard library, but there are some places where the libraries can be challenging to use. The html/template package is one of those places. So what alternatives do we have? On today’s episode we’re talking about Templ, an HTML templating language for Go that has great developer tooling. Co-hosts Kris Brandow and Jon Calhoun are joined by Adrian Hesketh, the creator of Templ, and Joe Davidson, one of the maintainers on the project.
