When Go programs end

Michael Knyszek from the Go team joins us to talk about what happens when a program ends. How are file handles cleaned up? When are deferred functions run, and when are they skipped entirely? Is there a way to terminate all running goroutines? Tune in to learn the answers to these questions and more!

CUE: Configuration superpowers for everyone

On this episode we learn how to Configure, Unify, and Execute things. What’s CUE all about? Well, it’s an open source language with a rich set of APIs and tooling for defining, generating, and validating all kinds of data: configuration, APIs, database schemas, code, … you name it.

Now that we’ve copy/pasted the project’s description… let’s dig in and learn how we can use CUE to make our Go programs better!

We're talkin' CI/CD

Continuous integration and continuous delivery are both terms we have heard, but what do they really mean? What does CI/CD look like when done well? What are some pitfalls we might want to avoid? In this episode Jérôme and Marko, authors of the book “CI/CD with Docker and Kubernetes” join us to share their thoughts.

The engineer who changed the game

Today we’re sharing a full-length episode of Command Line Heroes from Season 6 for you to check out. We hand picked this episode for you to listen to.

Many of us grew up playing cartridge-based games. But there’s few who know the story behind how those cartridges came to be. And even fewer who know the story of the man behind them: Jerry Lawson. Before Jerry, a gaming console could only play one game. Jerry quite literally changed the game. This episode shares Jerry’s story of inventing the cartridge-based system for gaming consoles.

Play with Go

Play with Go is a set of hands-on, interactive tutorials for learning the tools used while programming in Go. In this episode we are joined by its creators, Paul Jolly and Marcos Nils, as we learn more about what motivated the creation of the project, what technology it was built on, and how you can help contribute additional guides to help your fellow gophers!

Benchmarking the M1 with the Go standard library

We are in a time where the open source tooling and developer story around Apple’s new M1 chip is all over our feeds. Among these was this interesting benchmark. It even highlights where a somewhat older Intel can still beat the M1, such as highly optimized crypto. In general, if your code relies on the Go parts more than native optimized code the M1 looks like a performance win.

Maddy – a composable all-in-one mail server

Maddy Mail Server implements all functionality required to run an email server. It can send messages via SMTP (works as MTA), accept messages via SMTP (works as MX) and store messages while providing access to them via IMAP. In addition to that it implements auxiliary protocols that are mandatory to keep email reasonably secure (DKIM, SPF, DMARC, DANE, MTA-STS).

It replaces Postfix, Dovecot, OpenDKIM, OpenSPF, OpenDMARC and more with one daemon with uniform configuration and minimal maintenance cost.

IMAP storage is still in beta, but this is one to watch as it could dramatically simplify your infrastructure.

Russ Cox's experimental new refactoring tool for Go

It’s just 18 commits deep at the time of logging, but when one of Go’s authors fires up a new project (and a refactoring tool at that), it’s worth following along to see what develops.

Just how raw is this effort? The README only states:

rf is an experimental refactoring tool. It is very much a work in progress. rf is incredibly rough and likely to be buggy and change incompatibly.

I gave the repo a quick cloneing to see what I could see, but go get failed due to a missing file reference so it’s definitely in a “wait and see” status unless you’re up for some hacking.
