Stop the presses

Newsletters play a unique role for developers. As the Go community continues to grow and mature, these newsletters provide a much-needed filter for the oft overwhelming stream of new articles, talks, and libraries produced by the community on a weekly basis.

In this episode Johnny, Jon, and Mat are joined by Peter Cooper of the Golang Weekly newsletter to discuss his role as a newsletter curator. We explore difficult topics that touch on ethics and responsibilities of a curator and of course, the impact Peter and his team have on shaping, at least in part, what many in the Go community get exposed to.

Quack like a wha-?

Interfaces are everywhere in Go. The basic error type is an interface, writing with the fmt package means you are probably using an interface, and there are countless other instances where they pop up. In this episode Mark, Mat, Johnny, and Jon discuss interfaces at length, exploring what they are, how they are using them in their own projects, as well as tips for how you can leverage them in your own code.

Unusual uses for Go: GUIs

Johnny and Jon are joined by Andy Williams to talk about some of the unusual ways developers are using Go. In this particular episode they deep dive into building GUIs and discuss all of the challenges imposed by trying to build a UI that is both cross platform and functional. How do you create buttons that work on both mobile and a desktop app? Should you even be designing both apps at the same time? Tune in to find out!

Graph databases

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.

Code editors and language servers

In this episode we talk with Ramya Rao about code editors and language servers. We share our thoughts on which editor we use, why we use it, and why we’d switch. We also discuss what a language server is and why it matters in connecting editors and the languages they support. We also dive into various ways to be effective with VS Code including shortcuts, plugins, and more.

Kubernetes and Cloud Native

Johnny and Mat are joined by Kris Nova and Joe Beda to talk about Kubernetes and Cloud Native. They discuss the rise of “Cloud Native” applications as facilitated by Kubernetes, good places to use Kubernetes, the challenges faced running such a big open source project, Kubernetes’ extensibility, and how Kubernetes fits into the larger Cloud Native world.

Generics in Go

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?
