Talk 1: Go Cloud - Building Cross-Cloud Applications in Go
Issac Trotts from the Go Cloud team at Google will talk about Go Cloud generally and its aim of making it easier to create cross-cloud applications in Go.
He will dive into the driver/concrete pattern used throughout Go Cloud, and then some specific APIs it contains including blob, mysql, postgres, runtimevar, and pubsub. If there's time, he'll touch on Wire, the dependency injection tool that was developed to support projects using Go Cloud.

Talk 2: Best Practices for Debugging and Monitoring your Go Kubernetes Services
Kubernetes is a widely used orchestration platform, increasingly in support of microservices architectures. Go Developers are being tasked with managing the development, deployment, and production of services atop Kubernetes. While Kubernetes can automatically keep your service up in the event of failure or a software crash, it doesn’t provide visibility into how your service is behaving.
In this talk, Thomas Rampelberg will show you how to use Linkerd 2.1 to debug (and then monitor) service behaviors for Go apps running in a Kubernetes cluster. You will be able to do this without spending any time in documentation, without making any changes to config files, and in a manner that will not tick off either your fellow service owners or your platform architect overlords.
