Filippo Valsorda & Roland Shoemaker from the Go Team sit down with Natalie to catch us up on what’s new in Go’s crypto libraries. No, not that crypto… good ol’ cryptography!
After years of working for Google on the Go Team, Filippo Valsorda quit last year to experiment with more sustainable paths for open source maintainers. Good news, it worked! Filippo is now a full-time open source maintainer and he joins Jerod on this episode to tell everyone exactly how he’s making the equivalent to his total compensation package at Google in open source.
Mat, Filippo, Johan, and Roberto discuss security in Go. Does Go make it easy to secure your code? What common mistakes are Gophers making? What is fuzzing? How can attackers abuse your code if you use the default http mux?
Filippo Valsorda joined the show to talk about his project Hellogopher, whosthere (whoami.filippo.io),
$GOPATH, TLS 1.3, Cloudflare’s secret reverse proxy, and more.
