Go Beyond 5 Minutes: Commonly Used, Popular Packages and Frameworks for Real Life Development

Episode 23

In this episode I’m coming at you from GopherCon Iceland to talk about commonly used packages for Go!

A GIFM viewer asked in issue 148 about common packages and frameworks outside the standard library that are useful for Go apps.

I go beyond the standard 5 minute format and talk for 20+ minutes about great packages that you should look at for use in your Go apps.

If you’re starting to write a new Go app, these packages can save you tons of time. If you have an existing app, you can remove a lot of your code and replace with some of these things.

After all, the best code you can write is no code!

Check out the example code on GitHub and keep on rockin', Gophers!
