About this event


Hello Gophers,

GoDays (https://www.godays.io/) is in town so let's get together with Women Who Go Berlin (https://www.meetup.com/Women-Who-Go-Berlin/events/257369350/) to hear talks from some cool speakers!

Talk to us at the Gophers slack: https://gophersinvite.herokuapp.com/ in the #berlin channel, and follow us on twitter: https://twitter.com/gdgberlingolang


19:00-19:25 Networking over drinks and pizza

19:25-19:30 Welcome words

19:30-20:00 Go Modules: What They Are And Why You Should Care / Ellen Körbes

Package management has been a contentious topic in the Go community from day one. Let's take a look at a potential solution coming out in Go 1.11, called "modules." We'll discuss what they are, how to start using them, check out some examples, and see where they stand against the alternatives. Attendees will hopefully come out knowing whether this feature fits their particular case, and if so, how to implement it.

20:00-20:30 Announcements, HR lost & found, break

20:30-20:50 GRPC for the Web / Luk Burchard

REST and JavaScript pushed JSON as an independent format, making it the de-facto standard for designing web focused APIs. Tools like OpenAPI allow the typing of such API endpoints but are overly complex, hard to reason about, thus often not used. gRPC has proven itself in the backend using typed definitions and code generation. grpc-web allows using gRPC semantics from the frontend to the backend without losing development speed and type safety.

20:50-21:00 Observability in the Kitchen / Daisy Tsang

How can you leverage sensors, open-source software, and Go to improve your kitchen skills? This short talk explores the relationship between bread-making, humidity, and temperature, and how one can use monitoring tools to gain insight into the lively world of sourdough cultures.
