Just finished reading “Building Microservices with Go”. It’s like “Building Microservices” but much more Go specific 😌 pic.twitter.com/Q5ic2pQWii— Mario Carrión #LFGM 🍎 (@mariocarrion) October 24, 2017
Following the Building Microservices reading-trend, I just finished reading Building Microservices with Go, a much more Go-oriented Building Microservices book, which, not surprisingly, complements the one I read before.
Building Microservices with Go is a, relative, brand new book. It was published in July 2017 by Packt and brings a lot of specific Go (and not Go) ideas related to creating microservices.
Similar to other books, it distributes the examples via Github, all the chapters have a dedicated repository. The content overlaps nicely with all the previous books I’ve read so far this year (and before), it suggest a bunch of cool new libraries and projects like:
- validator: struct validator
- gziphandler: gzip middleware
- testify: mocks
- go-resiliency: resiliency patterns, like short circuit.
- The Pragmatic Logging Handbook
Plus some really nice tools:
I enjoyed Building Microservices with Go, it was a great complementary and really relevant read for Go. I’m not disappointed.
