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.
eBPF and Go
eBPF (7 years old) is a sandbox that can run code inside the linux kernel. It started as a technology to build firewalls, and has evolved over time to include a range of new features. The panel discuss the origins of eBPF and how it works, as well as dig into some real-world use cases. While eBPF programs themselves aren’t written in Go (more like C), we will hear about how you can communicate with eBPF programs from your Go code.
Gophers Say What!?
We’re celebrating our 200th episode with a crazy game of Gophers Say! Mat Ryer hosts two epic teams including Go Time OGs Carlisia, Erik, and Brian!
Go on hardware: TinyGo in the wild
In this episode, we will be exploring the tiny world of Go and Hardware. We are joined by three gophers, Vladimir Vivien, Tobias Theel, and Ron Evans, who will be discussing the use of Linux API (V4L2) to control video hardware and capture image data in realtime, programming Bluetooth devices, working on WiFi communication using an Arduino Nano 33 IoT NINA chip, and much more.
The little known team that keeps Go going
Ever wonder how new features get added to the go command? Or where tools like gopls come from? Well, there’s an open team that handles just those things. Just like the programming language itself, many of the tools that Go engineers use everyday are discussed and developed in the open. In this episode we’ll talk about this team, how it started, where it’s going, and how you can get involved.
Books that teach Go
Natalie sits down with Go book authors Bill Kennedy & Sau Sheong Chang to discuss the ins and outs of writing (and reading) books about Go!
Building actually maintainable software
Building software is difficult and time consuming, but the maintenance of software is where we spend the majority of our time. In this episode, Ian and sam join Johnny and Kris to discuss how to build actually maintainable software, the features of Go that make it good for writing maintainable software, and different ways that we might define the term “maintenance”.
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.
