The Go team had a great time at Google I/O 2011.
It was a pleasure to meet so many programmers who share our enthusiasm for Go,
and to share our work of the past few months.
For those of you that couldn’t be there in person,
you can now watch videos of our two Go presentations on YouTube.
In “Writing Web Apps in Go”
we announce the Go runtime for Google App Engine
and walk through the development and deployment of Moustachio,
the first Go App Engine app.
(See the presentation slides.)
The source code
for Moustachio is available as part of the SDK
along with some other examples,
such as this Mandelbrot demo.
Most important, this talk features the debut of the plush gopher.
For those that didn’t get one at the conference, we hope to make him available for purchase online soon.
“Real World Go”,
presented at I/O Bootcamp,
gives a brief introduction to Go and four case studies of its use in solving real problems:
Heroku with Doozer,
a highly available consistent data store,
MROffice Dialer, a VOIP system for call centers,
Atlassian’s virtual machine cluster management system,
Camlistore, a content addressable storage system.
Thanks to everyone who attended our talks and workshops. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
