Package Management: Using Go Modules

Are you going?

27 people going



Package Management with Golang has a long and colorful history! We'll take a brief look at that history before delving into the chosen solution that became available as a preview in Go 1.11, was refined in Go 1.12, and is slated to displace GOPATH as the default mechanism in Go 1.13 scheduled for an August release.

We'll cover the problem that Go Modules looks to solve, including assumptions and constraints, how to use the mechanism effectively, both to produce modules as well as consume them. Then we'll have a chance to start using Go Modules on our repos, workshop style. So bring your notebook computers, and let's peg those dependencies! :-D
