To build or to buy, that’s a constant question we ask ourselves as software engineers. In this episode we dig into the nuance of these options and the space between them with an eye toward both the building of software and its eventual maintenance.
What is a Product Manager, and do Engineers need them? In this episode, we will be discussing what a Product Manager does, what makes a good Product Manager, and debating if engineering teams truly need them, with some tech companies going without them.

In this episode, we will talk about building for Blockchain in Go. We are joined by two of the co-founders of Prysmatic Labs (a company behind the upgrades to the Ethereum network). Raul Jordan and Preston Van Loon tell Angelica how they started the company, as well as what it’s like to build technical infrastructure for the Ethereum blockchain using Go.
Perspectives from both the workshop leaders perspective, as well as the workshop participants. What are some top tips, things to watch out for, and ways to innovate and keep your participants engaged, especially in the remote world we are now living in.
The Call for Proposals for GopherCon 2021 is open from Monday, April 5th to Sunday, April 25th. Kris Brandow, an experienced GopherCon speaker, has published a series of guides to assist Gophers as they craft their proposals and think about submitting.
In this episode Kris reads through his guide, discussing the four parts with a GopherCon newbie, Angelica Hill, who spoke for the first time at GopherCon last year, and is a first time CFP reviewer this year.
Testing can be hard, how to test, where to test, what is a good test? All questions that can be deceptively difficult to answer. In this episode we talk about the trials and tribulations of testing and why it can be argued to be especially difficult in Go.
In this episode we talk about various types of writing and how we as Go developers can learn from them. Whether it is planning and preparing to write, communicating with team members, or making our code clearer for future developers to read through style guides.
Join Mat Ryer for a fun conversation with Kris Brandow, Angelica Hill, and Natalie Pistunovich about how these Gophers get work/life done in this crazy world! Expect to learn about work environment must-haves, communication tips & tricks, developer tool recommendations, and much more!
