Mark Bates on Go Web Frameworks and Techniques

Video description

Open source Go, the concurrent garbage-collected programming language that scales big and fast, is the emerging language of the Cloud. Russ Cox, technical co-leader of the Go Project at Google, described Go at a Boston area Google Developers Group meeting this way, “Go is a fast, fun, and productive language for writing programs.”

In this third in a series video about how to program with Go, Mark Bates, Go expert extraordinaire, ladles a big helping of the special Go sauce that makes this language so tasty. There is a lot to consume in this serving—22 segments—so settle in for a big meal.
