Workshop - Designing a Go Library With Hindsight
Bring your laptop! You will be coding! This workshop will be focusing on SQL libraries. Sam Nelson maintains one, he keeps tabs on the main competitor, and he's used native `database/sql`. Sam will share what he sees as major issues with each solution. After a short (10-15 minute) overview the current state of SQL in Go and some examples of really well designed packages, we'll be breaking up into groups to design an SQL library that _we_ want to use.
