Towards modern development of cloud applications
November 21 2023 - 08:30 (60 min )

We used Go to build a new cloud programming framework at Google. The way people use microservices to build distributed systems slowdown innovation and hinders application’s performance. Instead, the developer should split the code at logical boundaries and delegate execution challenges to a runtime.

Modern Cloud Development with Service Weaver
November 19 2023 - 14:00 (240 min )

This class teaches how to build distributed applications in Go with Service Weaver. At the beginning of the class, the instructor will walk you through the motivation behind Service Weaver and introduce you to the core abstractions that you need to know in order to develop a Service Weaver application. In the second part of the class, we will develop, instrument, test, and debug an emoji search engine application that will run in the cloud.
