Get 'Go'ing with Microservices

Duration: 50 mins
Stephanie Sherriff
Senior Software Engineer, Spaceship

This talk covers getting started with microservices in golang, using protobufs, grpc and unit testing.

Getting started with microservices in golang is easy, even easier if you use grpc and protobufs. During this talk we'll start from scratch to create a service definition and spin up a new golang project. We'll also go through connecting from our new microservice to another microservice and how to unit test. Yes, we're covering unit tests because you should never commit your code without testing it, right?
