Starting Serverless with Go

Serverless – so hot right now. All the big players of cloud platforms have launched some kind of runtime to execute code. By focusing on coding business logic this leads to short production-ready developments. This talk aims to show why Go is a good choice to start with serverless.

Go on a journey away from the mammoth C/C++ monolith

There is no rocket science or big fancy voila neat trick on Golang here. This would just be our actual journey, from some home cooked C extension mod for Apache httpd and our own templating engine to a grand shift toward Golang, what we have done, how did we go-on, what we have not done

Kelvin Vuong
CTO @ Chotot
Ask question

Anatomy of a Docker container

What are Containers and How is Docker made? It's a bunch of namespaces and cgroups put together to build the process isolations that we see. What are namespaces and how do they operate? The talk invokes one Linux namespace at a time, as system calls from a Golang code, up to a full-fledged container

Ask question

How we build scalable architecture at Sendo

This talk is how Sendo use microservices with gRPC, Protobuf and some architectures to speed up system.

Viet Tran
Solution Architect @ Sendo
Ask question

An investigative walk through of Go channels

This talk deeps dive into the inner workings of Go’s channels using an interactive debugger to understand it’s strengths and shortcomings.

Large Scale Data Capture & Experimentation Platform at Grab

Come to learn how we built a system to experiment and rollout features across hundreds of microservices at Grab. The talk is also inclusive of a high-performance event tracking system which captures hundreds of thousands of events per second from mobile apps and backend services and makes them easily queryable through SQL.

Roman Atachiants
Head of Engineering @ Grab
Ask question

Production Ready Microservices at Scale

Writing Microservices which can withstand the unpredictable nature of the production environment at scale is a non-trivial task. Certain practices can help make our systems 6 predictable, transparent and resilient. For developers this means more confident and continuous deployments.
