GoWroc #37: Errors, mutexes and ENV

Oct 24, 2019 · Wrocław, Poland

📅 Agenda
🕖 5:45 Networking

🕖 6:00 Talks
➡️ Paweł Słomka: Looking forward to see your err
A short talk about error handling in the past (pre Go 1.13), future (1.13+), and the outer, non-standard space (pkg/errors).
➡️ Krzysztof Dryś: Benchmarking data synchronization patterns
How expensive is it to lock a mutex? Does it make any difference, if it is a read-write one? Are channels faster? I will be live-codding benchmarks of different ways to access a memory key-value store. We will see, what complexity and performance tradeoffs come with different patterns. Surely, we all know that “premature optimization is the root of all evil”. But it is also so much fun!
➡️ Tobiasz Heller: Read environment variables with grace.
Do you think that `os.Getenv("FOO")` is not good a choice for an application with multiple settings? How to pass config from env into the library? I will show you how reading environment variables can be simplified using `github.com/kelseyhightower/envconfig`.

🕗 7:30 Networking
