29 May 2017   1260

Go is an open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community.

Go is a fairly young language, so there aren't many Go-experts, much like vacancies. In May 2017, Russian companies posted 163 vacancies. This is several times less than for such common languages like PHP or JavaScript.

There aren't many vacancies for Go developers but they are paid good. Average wage level is 100 000 rubles atleast, which is evident against the salary of developers, who use other technologies.

Even the average salary of developers with an experience of 1 to 3 years does not fall below this mark. So it's very promising to master Go.

16 July 2018   122

In open access, a beta version of the NGINX Unit 1.3 application server was released. Developers continued to expand the ability to run web applications in Python, PHP, Perl, Ruby and Go. The project code is written in C and is distributed under the Apache 2.0 license.


Version 1.3 eliminates the problems with handling errors when installing HTTP connections.

Among other changes:

  • parameter max_body_size to limit the size of the body of the request;
  • new parameters for setting timeouts when setting up an HTTP connection:
         "settings": {
              "http": {
                  "header_read_timeout": 30,
                  "body_read_timeout": 30,
                  "send_timeout": 30,
                  "idle_timeout": 180,
                  "max_body_size": 8388608
  • automatic use of the Bundler where possible in the Ruby module;
  • http.Flusher interface in the module for the Go language;
  • The possibility of using characters in the UTF-8 encoding in the request headers.

The first version of the NGINX 1.1 application server was released in mid-April 2018. Under the control of NGINX Unit, several applications can be executed simultaneously in different programming languages, the startup parameters of which can be changed dynamically without the need to edit the configuration files and restart.
