In this talk, we'll hear from Sam Helman, Software Engineer at 10gen, on how 10gen is integrating Go into our new and existing cloud tools. Some of the tools leveraging Go include the backup capabilities in MongoDB Management Service and a continuos integration tool. This was an opportunity to experiment with new technologies and create a better product for end users.
Programming the in Go and the mgo driver has been extremely satisfying. Between the lightweight syntax, the first-class concurrency and the well documented, idiomatic libraries such as mgo, Go is a great choice for writing anything from small scripts to large distributed applications. In this talk, Sam will go through how the team has integrated Go and why Go and MongoDB are a great match for cloud services.
