Talk Topic - Concurrency made easy

Abstract: Go’s headline feature is its simple, lightweight
concurrency, but most Go programmers that stick with the language for
a while tend to look back on their early efforts and say things like
“wow, I really went overboard with channels” or “I went crazy with
goroutines, it was impossible to understand what the program did”.
Clearly, there is a disconnect between the concurrency primitives that
the language offers, and the expectations of many why come to Go for
exactly those features. This talk will explore some strategies for
using with concurrency in Go without the pitfalls.
