Your source for diverse discussions from around the Go community. This show records LIVE every Tuesday at 3pm US Eastern. Join the Golang community and chat with us during the show in the #gotimefm channel of Gophers slack. Panelists include Mat Ryer, Jon Calhoun, Carmen Andoh, Johnny Boursiquot, Angelica Hill, Mark Bates, Kris Brandow, and Natalie Pistunovich. We discuss cloud infrastructure, distributed systems, microservices, Kubernetes, Docker… oh and also Go! Some people search for GoTime or GoTimeFM and can’t find the show, so now the strings GoTime and GoTimeFM are in our description too.
Do devs need a product manager?
What is a Product Manager, and do Engineers need them? In this episode, we will be discussing what a Product Manager does, what makes a good Product Manager, and debating if engineering teams truly need them, with some tech companies going without them. We are joined by Gaëlle Sharma, Senior Technical Product Manager, at the New York Times, leading the Identity group.
SIV and the V2+ issue
Go modules brought about quite a few changes to the Go ecosystem. One of those changes is semantic import versioning (SIV), which has a fairly pronounced effect on how libraries are identified. In this episode we are joined by Tim Heckman and Peter Bourgon to discuss some of the downsides to these changes and how it has lead to what a subset of the Go community refers to as the “v2+ problem.”
Fuzzing in the standard library
Fuzzing is coming to the standard library. We speak to Katie Hockman and Jay Conrod who were part of the team responsible for designing and implementing it. We dig into the details, hear some best practices, where fuzzing can help your code, and learn more about how it works.
Pop quiz time! 😱
Learning Go with code pop quizzes is a fun way to zoom in on different language features. People are looking forward to pop quizzes on Twitter and in conferences, and they also learn from that. Let’s chat about pop quizzes!
Giving TDD a Go
We discuss how Test Driven Development (TDD) can help you write better code, and build better software. Packed with tips and tricks, gotchas and best practices, the panel explore the subject and share their real-world experiences.
All about Porter
Porter lets you package your application artifacts, client tools, configuration and deployment logic together as a versioned bundle that you can distribute, and then install with a single command. Written entirely in Go, we speak to one of the creators about running an open source project, the importance of documentation, and more.
The podcast is good; holy moly to the guy conflating calling go “go lang” with being incapable of not deadnaming people... wow.
I don’t write code but this is so informative!
So I’m not a developer, but this podcast has made me want to get started. I work with Kubernetes and helm and go is what they work with. I’ve learned so much not even within just go it’s a great podcast.
Great Podcast, even for non-Gophers
I don’t program in Go. I thought that maybe this podcast would be a good introduction to it, but it actually made me think I’d prefer other (more functional) languages. That said, it’s still one of my favorite programming podcasts. Hosts are entertaining, knowledgeable, and give different insights. The content may circle around Go, but is relevant to all different kinds of software developers and programmers.
