FCIP December Meetup: Building Scalable Microservices with Go
The demand for scalable systems continues to rise as microservices progress into the mainstream. The Go language is well suited for overcoming the complex and unique development challenges when creating distributed systems by producing lightweight, well-performing applications. Golang features a small memory footprint and an idiomatic style that gives developers an easy entry point for creating scalable microservices. Join us on Tues, Dec 4, as Caleb Champlin introduces modern design patterns and frameworks to help build Go microservices to meet the demands of millions of users. This talk focuses on using the Go language to architect scalable microservices. The discussion will present best practices, common pitfalls, and real world examples of high-performance distributed applications. This presentation is oriented towards intermediate-to-expert level developers, but Golang experience is not a pre-requisite. Complimentary drinks and appetizers will be served at 5:45pm. The presentation will start at 6:00pm with lively Q&A to follow. RSVP today! MORE ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Caleb Champlin is a Software Engineer working for Informa PLC in Fort Collins, CO. He graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Computer Science with a concentration in Education. Caleb is an open source enthusiast with contributions to projects, including Atom’s PHP-Debug, Golang, Go-V8, PHP Internals, Alpine Linux, and Gov-Drupal. He is an advocate for basic computer literacy with a passion for getting women and minorities involved in computing.

Our logo ( was designed with the diversity and creativity of our members in mind. The infinity loop represents, among many things, our appreciation for infinite creation, ideas and learning. The component parts of the logo also represent collaboration and kinetic potential. These elements all live in an abstract cubed space, which is a placeholder for their virtual environment. The <> symbols are a nod to the underlying building blocks of that environment, which is the internet. Many thanks to John Patzman of 1KRobots ( for designing our logo and to the FCIP members who voted for this design to represent our amazing group.
