Abstract

In an era dominated by data, the demand for efficient databases and storage retrieval systems continues to escalate. The selection of the appropriate programming language has always been crucial in designing software capable of handling high volumes of data with optimal performance. Despite being a garbage-collected language, Golang has emerged as a leading choice for developing high-performance databases, owing to its multitude of valuable benefits. From its adeptness in managing concurrency to its robust standard library and emphasis on simplicity, Golang offers a compelling package.

Numerous real-world examples underscore the effectiveness of Golang in building efficient databases. Among them, immudb, an open-source tamperproof immutable database written in Golang, offers a prominent illustration. Using immudb as a focal point, this talk endeavors to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of employing Golang for database projects. We will explore its agility in handling complex data structures, ease of deployment, and seamless integration with concurrency. Additionally, we'll navigate through the challenges and trade-offs, such as the learning curve for newcomers and potential performance bottlenecks in specific use cases.

Regardless of your interest in database development, this talk guarantees valuable insights into leveraging the capabilities of Golang for crafting scalable and performance-critical applications.
