Go and Google App Engine (GAE)

The DC Area Golang users are throwing down at UberOffices in Rosslyn on October 17th. There will be 3+ quick presentations and the opportunity to showcase your project. We will get to find out how to:

- Get the green light to use Go in your next consulting gig

- Strengths and weaknesses of GAE

- Web services and NoSQL

 

We are actively looking for food and beverage sponsors for this meetup. If you are interested please let me know!

    Also, a github repo of similar code that we made, minus the time.Time stuff, plus TLS. https://github.com/wfreeman/go-json-webservice

    Btw, I'd like to invite anyone interested in Neo4j to the meetup next Tuesday (2 metro stops away)--forgot to mention it at the end of the meeting: http://www.meetup.com/graphdb-baltimore/events/137240202/

    Nice overview of web service development in Go. Learned about a few packages I hadn't heard of.

    When you arrive to Uberoffices, it is on the 1st floor. There is a street-level entrance in the plaza between 1400 Key Blvd and 1401 Wilson Blvd off North Oak St, versus the "main" entrance on Key Blvd which makes you take the elevator *up* from B-level.

    Anyone have any parking tips for that neighborhood?

    October 17, 2013

    • Jonathan A.

      There is quite a bit of on-street parking right around the building, but I am not sure how much of it the residents use in the evenings. There is also a garage under the building although getting to the payment machine is a hassle.

      Those darn residents always residing where you want to park. Sheesh.

    greetings.. any hold ups on getting the next meeting schedule re location or dates? locations can be found.

    May 22, 2013

    • Ryan D.

      Locations and dates are plentiful really. What we are looking for are people with production experience with Go that could share something. GAE would be nice, but anything you guys are doing at Canonical would be great to hear about as well :)

    I've been doing GAE in java for two years. Love GAE but hate java. I also want the concurrency I assume comes with Go. At this point I'd be happy just tooling up and comparing notes.

    I can't see who originally proposed this meetup. Is the idea here to showcase any particular tool? Or shall we all just do some lightning rounds on the tools we use?

    March 7, 2013

  • Dean W.

    I could provide a location in downtown DC if needed. I use GAE everyday in Java. Want to switch to Go when I can.

    Look forward to hearing about this and sharing my experience with it.

    I have my eclipse setup to develop. Still learning the API for this. I need to learn how it scales with generic web services and if it allows anon port 80 access etc. Sounded great.

    I've started to work on a tool to help with this: https://github.com/etgryphon/gaea
