About this event


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 (

Speaker’s Bio

Robert Grandl is a software engineer at Google, where he is working on Service Weaver, a new cloud programming framework. Previously, he worked on Slicer, Google's autosharder system. Before Google, Robert got his PhD from the University of Wisconsin Madison, where he researched and published several papers in top conferences in systems and networking, in the area of speeding up distributed data analytics systems.

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.

Part 1: Service Weaver Presentation

  • What is Service Weaver?
  • Service Weaver concepts.
  • How to develop, deploy, debug, and monitor a Service Weaver application.

Part 2: Hands-on Activity

  • We will develop, instrument, test, and debug a Service Weaver application.


Please bring a Linux or MacOS laptop with Go version 1.20 or later installed.

Please prepare your development environment to write Go programs.
