About this event

Join us at Google Cambridge for a workshop on Service Weaver by Robert Grandl.

Service Weaver ( is a programming framework that makes it easy to write, deploy, and manage distributed applications written in Go. With Service Weaver, you write your application as a modular monolith and compile it into a single binary. The Service Weaver runtime then splits the binary and deploys it as a set of distributed services. This programming model enables you to focus on what your code does without worrying so much about where it runs. You can deploy your application across multiple execution environments, locally on your laptop, across a pool of machines via SSH, or in the cloud! Additionally, the Service Weaver runtime can reduce infrastructure costs and improve application latency by several orders of magnitude compared to the status quo. These metrics that are of real concern in the industry lately (

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:

  • Develop a Service Weaver application;
  • Add instrumentation (e.g., logs, metrics, traces) to your application;
  • Debug, monitor, and test your application;
  • Understand how to deploy your application to the cloud.
