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, Natalie Pistunovich, Johnny Boursiquot, Angelica Hill, Kris Brandow, and Ian Lopshire. 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.
Functional programming with generics?
We did an episode on functional programming in Go with Aaron Schlesinger back in 2019… But that was before generics were a thing. Let’s revisit the topic and discuss the pros and cons now that we have generics. What’s changed? What hasn’t?
Engineering interview tips & tricks
In this episode, we will be exploring interviewing as a Software Engineer. Tips, tricks, and gotchas, as well as potentially some interviewing horror stories and red flags to avoid at all costs. We’re joined by Emma Draper, Engineering Manager at the New York Times based in Arizona, and Kate Jonas, goes by Jonas, Technical Enablement Manager at Datadog based in Denver.
Stay agile out there
Inbal Cohen, Product expert and Agile evangelist, joins Natalie & Angelica for a conversation about all things Agile. Inbal lays out some agile tips for Go devs, discusses if and how remote work changes things, describes some downsides of the methodology, and more.
Egon Elbre and Roger Peppe join Mat for a conversation all about bloat (and how to avoid it). Expect talk of code bloat, binary bloat, feature bloat, and an even-more-bloated-than-usual unpopular opinion segment.
Ever wondered how GopherCon came to be, and how it’s put together every year. In this show we will be chatted with Erik St. Martin, who has been there from the start about how GopherCon came to be, how this year’s conference came together, as well as why events like GopherCon as so great! We are joined by Erik St. Martin, GopherCon Organizer and Co-Author Go in Action.
The art of the PR: Part 2
In this episode, we’ll be further exploring PRs. Check out The art of the PR: Part 1 if you haven’t yet. What is it that makes a PR a good PR? How do you consider PRs in an open source repo? How do you vet contributions from people who aren’t a part of the repository? How does giving feedback and encouragement fit in to the PR process? We’ll be debating the details, and trying to help our fellow gophers perfect the art of the PR. We are joined by the awesome Anderson Queiroz, hosted by Natalie Pistunovich & Angelica Hill.
New Gophers - make sure you Go check out this show!
I started exploring the Go programming language recently, and part of my research when learning about a technology involves searching for community resources such as podcasts. I was surprised to find that this appears to be the only currently active podcast for Golang (as I write in early 2022). However the breadth of topics and variety of guests they bring on makes it hard for me to argue there need to be many more.
Thanks for keeping this great show going for all these years and providing a great backlog of content for new Gophers such as myself to dive into!
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.
