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.
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.
Ben Johnson, creator of BoltDB, joined the show to talk about NoSQL vs. Sql databases, tradeoffs between the two, and choosing one over the other. We also talk about Ben’s Secret Lives of Data project, visualizing data structures, and go over his motivation and plans for his blog post series “Go Walkthrough” of the Go standard library.
Ben Johnson joined the show to talk about BoltDB, InfluxDB, and several other key-value store databases out there and why he’s so passionate about developing open source software.
