Hands-On Workshop: DevOps for Go Developers - JFrog

Online event

Hands-on Workshop

Audience: Go Developers (all levels)

➤ DevOps for Go Developers - Batel Tova Zohar

Workshop Description

I'm sure you have heard that the Go language is playing an increasingly important role in DevOps. This can make it really difficult to get your feet underneath you on an unfamiliar landscape. What does DevOps really mean? I’ll answer all of these questions (and more) during this hands-on workshop, we will create a Go repository manager with our Free DevOps Tools to create a Go project and run it while also setting up an end-to-end DevOps solution to automate your build artifact storage, vulnerability detection, testing, and deployment.

Prerequisites:

1. When you arrive at the workshop, you will open your Free JFrog Cloud Account when you get to the meetup. We will walk you through it, as these are tools you will be using for the Workshop (and you can them with you!)

This is free, no credit card required. It includes access to Artifactory and Xray, with a limited amount of storage, transfer, and build minutes.

2. Go client version 11.1 or above installed: https://golang.org/dl/

3. JFrog CLI installed: https://jfrog.com/getcli

4. Docker: The Docker client should be installed and configured on your machine.

5. Git + GitHub
A GitHub account is required so that you can fork this repository, and Git must be configured in your terminal so that you can clone it.

6. Code editor

Whatever you are most comfortable with as an editor.

➤ Talk 2: Unbounded Concurrency:

Go concurrency mechanism is one of the language's most attractive features. Too much of it can get you in trouble, however. Using nothing but our wits and the Go standard library, we will build an increasingly sophisticated port scanner to help us learn how best to take advantage of Go’s concurrency capabilities and how to avoid some of its pitfalls.
