With a clear and concise syntax and a comprehensive standard library and rich ecosystem, Go allows us to quickly prototype our services. But when our newborn applications land in the production environment, many threats undermine their stability, and so our satisfaction. In this workshop we will explore, with a hands on approach, the most common patterns to improve the stability and resilience of our applications. We’ll start from the basics and we’ll see how Go already packs a lot of features that helps us to write production grade software. Then we’ll look more into how to structure an application in a maintainable and testable way. Finally, we’ll implement some patterns to improve the stability and the performance under a very high load scenario.
