Keynote: Lessons from the context package

The context package is Francesc's current favorite package in the standard library. This talk will cover why the context package is, while simple, full of subtle lines of code. There's many lessons to be taken from the design of the package, and some of them might be applicable to your next Go project.

Fighting GO FUD

A look at how you can sell Go to your boss, clients, and fellow co-workers. I’ll give you the ammunition you need to make a convincing argument for this powerful language, and how to respond to the usual FUD arguments you get. I’ll also let you in on some “sneaky” ways to get Go into your business.

Snickers: Open Source HTTP API for Media Encoding

During the last 10 years, the video publishing at The New York Times relied on vendors and in-house hardware. This decision created a few bottlenecks to scaling its video production and it became a blocker for journalists to produce videos. Now, the company is focused on integrating the encoding pipeline with some cloud services.

Patterns to avoid cascading failure in highly distributed systems

The one thing that we can be certain of is that at some point things are going to go just a little bit wrong, gracefully degrading functionality is far better than a complete outage and in this talk you will learn the software patterns that allow you to break softly.

Writing multiplayer game servers in Go

Game servers are quite different beasts compared to their web counterparts: they have a highly dynamic state, strict latency requirements and they contain a lot of event-based logic. All this makes game server development a challenge, and we’ll see how to win using Go. Let’s play!

Ho to write your own Go tool?

Go tools are very powerful and yet simple to use. But how are Go tools created? In this talk I’m going to answer this question by showing the various Go parser family packages (go/token, go/scanner, go/parser, etc…) and how to use them to create your own Go tool from scratch.

Dependency management in Go

Dependency management is one of the most debated argument of discussion in the Go community. Many different tools has been proposed without never electing the definitive one. The goal of this talk is to present the status of d.m. in Go and engage the attendee to elect the definitive (or not) tool.

How to port your Python software to Go without people noticing

Success stories about rewriting Python applications in Go are not big news anymore. The pros and cons are well known, best practices are in place, the standard library is there to help. But what if there’s some Python code you would like to keep or worse, some you can’t get rid of?

Go & IoT: implementing an IoT client platform

In this talk will be presented an implementation of the client side of the Nubila IoT platform, completely written in Go. Thanks to its portability, the attitude for system programming, the rich ecosystem of libraries and, of course, the speed, Go is perfectly suited for this task.

Collaborative content systems in Go

Making content management system for a OSS risk security assessment app.
We will present content contribution system Octo, written in Go, which emphasises three principles:
- transparency of the contributions
- traceability of changes
- authentication included
- multiple modes of collaboration
- extensible (share data with other platforms)
- i18n (export/import to and from translation services)
- automatic propagation via post hooks
- performance

How to build a massive scalable architecture with Golang. From web to desktop.

We wrote a web application for millions users. We needed a way to have scalable and fast api and a small desktop application. How did we create a set of modular applications from microservices to desktop apps and released some of the open source? With Go.

Inception, Go programs that generate Go code

Go is amazing, but sometimes we need to code lots of boiler plate. Fortunately, there are different ways you can reduce boilerplate by having programs generate all the boring code you would traditionally write by hand. In this talk we will look into different ways you can build programs that generate source code for other programs.

Game development for beginners

Golang being a featureful language, it’s support for C bindings & simple concurrency, its a right languge for game development. But not yet. The golang libraries are not matured as of now. However I think writing a game is an interesting way to learn golang. This is intended for beginners with some golang knowledge.

Mechanical Sympathy and Data Oriented Design

This is a 1 day class for any experienced Go developer who want to learn more about debugging and profiling applications in Go. We will learn details about Mechanical Sympathy and Data Oriented Design as it relates to Go. Then we debug and profile small applications and eventually a larger web application attempting to understand where we need to focus attention and fixing issues.

Training: Exploring Readers and Writers

Interfaces are crucial for decomposing and combining functionality in Go programs. Among the interfaces in the standard library two are a bit more prominent, as they provide simple, yet powerful facilities to work with data streams: io.Reader and io.Writer.

Training: Go, conquering the web

Golang sure has won the medal of honor when it comes to API, backend infrastructure, orchestration, background jobs, concurrency and micro services. But talk about a full-fledged web app and everyone goes running back to Django and Ruby on Rails. So let’s make Golang win this war. #MakeGoGreatAgain
