Go for DevOps

Experienced developer report about the features of Go
18 August 2017   1920

Go is an great open source multiplatform language for cross-platform development which is ideal for ops tools. If you target multi-platform, multi-architecture environments, come learn how Go enables you to write once and run anywhere. No more need for kludgy shell scripts.

This talk will cover the built in features of Golang that make it possible to write your code on one platform and seamlessly deliver it to many different operating systems and architectures. As a devops engineer I have tools and services that need to support multiple operating systems running on different CPU architectures.

You will learn the specific ways to generate *bsd-386 binaries on Windows-x64, android-arm binaries on Linux-ppc and all combinations in between. I'll also be covering coding techniques to keep this manageable and libraries that support you in things like file system navigation.

GoLand 2018.3 to be Released by JetBrains

New version of IDE for Go programming language has a lot of new features
22 November 2018   377

Team JetBrains introduced a new version of IDE GoLand 2018.3. In this update, users will see:

  • refactoring by changing the signature;
  • memory dump;
  • Testify support;
  • new debugger tools;
  • Improved verification, prediction and code completion;
  • chart support;
  • updates for VCS, Docker, Kubernetes.

The new method of processing the code Change Signature will allow a single action to change the signature of functions and methods throughout the workspace. The function will show what will change in the code after application. The Inline tool will highlight the embedded code, and Rename will notify you of possible conflicts when renaming.

Added the ability to run and debug Google App Engine applications locally.

Go memory dumps are now available via Run / Open Core Dump directly in the IDE. To automatically create memory dumps, you need to enter GOTRACEBACK = crash in the Environment field.

Also, GoLand 2018.3 supports the Mozilla debugger rr, which allows you to search for a crash in the program by playing back its execution.

The previous version of GoLand 2018.2 was released in July 2018.
