The Cloud Foundry engineering teams have steadily increased their use of the Go programming language (http://golang.org) for building (or rebuilding) components, starting with the Router, and progressing through Loggregator, the “cf” CLI, and more recently the Health Manager 9000.
As a Java-developer-turned-DevOps-junkie focused on helping our customers and community succeed with Cloud Foundry, it's become clear to me that I need to add Go to my knowledge portfolio.
Go is a very interesting language, open-sourced by Google in late-2009, that takes a “less is more” (http://commandcenter.blogspot.de/2012...) approach to language design, but that also bakes in a powerful concurrency model.
This talk will introduce Go, delve into its distinctives, and contrast its approach with that of Java (where appropriate). We'll also write a fair amount of Go code along the way. This talk will be of particular interest to Java developers looking to add Go to their toolkits, but will also be of interest to anyone looking to learn a little bit more about Go.
