#1. Migrating towards Go 1.13 errors
Paweł Słomka

Ever since I started using Go, I’ve always used 3rd party pkg/errors to deal with complex errors more elegantly. Fast forward to Go 1.13, wrapping errors reached the standard library. I’d like to show the feature, and ways you can migrate from the 3rd party solution to the new standard.

Bio:

I’m more than a software developer. I’m an NBA fanatic (I need to know everything that is going on, which eats a lot of my time, unfortunately) and an amateur basketball player myself. I’m also a three-times (so far) Marathon runner, but I’m definitely going to do that again.

#2. Data Mapping with Style
Jack Juda

With ever increasing datasets came ever increasing number of complex queries. However, I would like to introduce a slick framework which simplifies the management of complex datasets by mapping SQL data to protocol buffers.

Bio:

Hi, My name is Jack and I’m an avid gopher. I really like building new and cool stuff. Preferably things that improve the way we do everyday things. Recently, I wrote an open source framework which makes management of complex data just a little easier. I work at CBS as a cloud architect, specializing in “big data” and microservice architecture.
