When using the right patterns, testing in Go is more powerful than any other language. In this talk I present those patterns and show how they can save massive amounts of time, energy and cognitive effort for everyday Go programmers.
Having worked on many large, production codebases written in Go I’ve noticed many patterns which make testing easier. Together we will explore well known testing principles and see how they fit in with Go with plenty of examples to get you started writing better code.
This talk will be particularly useful to people who work in large Go codebases with many dependencies. I will talk in detail about how to test concurrent code as well as how to manage many backend implementations effectively.
No matter what your level of Go programming is, this talk is for you.
