Kelsey Hightower ( - Betting the Company on Go and Winning
Since the very beginning CoreOS bet the farm on Go, even before it became the popular language it is today. CoreOS builds and ships components that enable users to create distributed systems from the ground up. Just about everything CoreOS builds including our popular open source projects such as etcd, fleet, and rocket are built using Go; this also holds true for most CoreOS commercial offerings.

But how did we do it? What challenges did we face?

In this talk we will answer these questions and provide a retrospective, if you will, on using Go at CoreOS over the years.

Kelsey has worn every hat possible throughout his career in tech and enjoys leadership roles focused on making things happen and shipping software. Kelsey is a strong open source advocate focused on building simple tools that make people smile. When he is not slinging Go code you can catch him giving technical workshops covering everything from Programming, System Administration, and his favorite Linux distro of the month (CoreOS).

Peter Bourgon ( - Go kit: Go in the modern enterprise
Go might just be the perfect language for microservices: small, purpose-driven, and efficient. But microservices have a common set of concerns that aren't addressed by Go's standard library, like circuit breaking, rate limiting, instrumentation, and adapters to service discovery and tracing systems. In this talk I'll describe Go kit, a toolkit for microservices in Go, and how it tries to bridge these gaps with as little opinion as possible. I hope I can convince you to try out Go and Go kit for your next project!

Peter is a software engineer with an interest in large-scale distributed systems. Prior to Weaveworks, Peter has been a systems software engineer at several telecom companies, and a senior engineer at Bloomberg and SoundCloud. Peter is a prolific user and advocate of Go, and is the author of several popular open-source Go projects, including Roshi, a CRDT-based data system for time-series events, and go-kit, a toolkit for microservices in the style of Finagle or Ribbon.

Francesc Campoy ( - Twelve Go best practices

Francesc Campoy Flores joined the Go team in 2012 as Developer Programs Engineer. Since then, he has written some considerable didactic resources and traveled the world attending conferences and organizing live courses. He joined Google in 2011 as a backend software engineer working mostly in C++ and Python, but it was with Go that he rediscovered how fun programming can be. He loves languages; fluent in four of them, he’s now tackling a fifth one.
