Talk Title : Using goja as a scripting layer for go applications

Simon Aronsson, Developer Advocate at k6

23rd Jan 2021 (Saturday), 13:00-13:25 CET


When we built k6, we knew from the get-go that the tool performance would be a primary concern. Because of this, we opted for using go for the core and goja, and by extension javascript, as our scripting layer. This choice has mostly come with advantages, but also some trade-offs in comparison to writing it in pure NodeJS. During this session, we’ll share how that turned out and the lessons we’ve learned.
