Baron Schwartz speaking at OSCON EU

Baron Schwartz will be speaking on Building Microservices with Go at OSCON EU on October 26th.

Below is an overview;

Go is great for building HTTP and RPC services. VividCortex’s infrastructure is Go-based, and there are a lot of lessons to learn from the experience building it. Here are some of the things we needed to do above and beyond what the standard libraries provide:

  • Using net/http effectively
  • Building an actually sane REST framework in Go
  • Dealing with garbage collection
  • Building a build system
  • Continuous integration and deployment
  • Running services (daemons)
  • Runtime inspection of all in-flight requests
  • Interacting with databases, caches, and queues
  • Building staging and development environments

Go heavily influenced all of the above, and there was additional work needed beyond just plug-and-play with the libraries.

Austin Meetup at RackSpace: Database Bottlenecks

If you are in the Austin area on July 27, join the MySQL GroupData Geeks and Devops meetups at RackSpace from 6:30 - 8:45.

In this talk Baron Schwartz, renowned MySQL performance expert and all-around database guru, will explain why your database’s performance is a lot less important to your business than the way you structure your engineering team. The interesting thing is that a lot of the most serious team, communication, and process bottlenecks in your business (the ones that make you miss ship deadlines, crash the site, and lose your best team members after repeated all-nighters) are actually driven by database issues, but not the way you think they are.
